Côte d'Ivoire sees surge in business growth and investment in 2023

(Ecofin Agency) - In line with the National Development Plan (PND) 2021-2025, Côte d'Ivoire aims to raise CFA59 trillion in investments, largely supported by the private sector. The Investment Promotion Agency of Côte d'Ivoire (CEPICI), serving as the country's one-stop shop for investment, has committed to contributing 20% of these private investments.

During its financial review conference on February 22, CEPICI announced a notable achievement with over CFA1000.15 billion in approved investments, marking a 6% increase from the previous year and significant growth compared to 2021.

According to General Director Solange Amichia, this success stems from a targeted strategy aligned with the national strategy established by the government. "We first identified countries most active in foreign direct investments and then focused on key sectors that align with the guidelines of the National Development Plan, which sets our sectoral priorities," she said in an exclusive interview set to appear on Agence Ecofin.

The number of new businesses has also seen a substantial increase, reaching over 25,429 last year, thanks to initiatives aimed at promoting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This has resulted in the number of businesses created daily rising from 13 in 2013 to 101 in 2023.

With the PND 2021-2025, Côte d'Ivoire plans to raise CFA59 trillion in investments, predominantly supported by the private sector. CEPICI has pledged to make a significant contribution, accounting for 20% of these private investments.

The growth in business creation and the increase in approved investments highlight the country's commitment to fostering an environment conducive to economic growth and development. Through targeted strategies and sectoral focus, Côte d'Ivoire is making strides toward achieving the ambitious goals set out in its National Development Plan.
