Overview Côte d’Ivoire

Show region West and Central Africa

Key structural reforms with regard to the distribution and access to land or the building up of a more professional security sector have only partially been tackled. Regional politics and economic integration remain an untapped resource.

Overall macroeconomic performance has strongly improved, which is due to domestic reforms in the administration and key economic sectors and due to considerable public investment in infrastructure, education and health. Much remains to be done in terms of poverty reduction and modernization of physical infrastructure.

The severe economic downturn during the many years of political-military conflicts led to higher levels of generalized corruption and venality at all levels of public administration.
