Ivorian economic growth is estimated at 6% by the IMF

Ivory Coast’s economy has proved itself as a powerful survivor in the wake of pandemic shock. Although economic growth slowed sharply in 2020, it remained positive and was expected to continue booming this year thanks to higher domestic demand for goods and decreased political tensions after an eventful election season last year – rare occurrences that may not be found among neighboring African countries with high debt levels, indicated BNP Paribas. A promising African country, Ivory Coast has been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis, that resulted in a decline from their annual growth rate to 1.8%. However domestic demand is expected to help them recover for next year with an average of 8% forecasted. In 2019, Ivory Coast was ranking #110 in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business index (Sources: BNP Paribas, World Bank and Reuters).
