Côte d'Ivoire's Economy

The economic outlook for Cote D'ivoire remains favourable, with real GDP growth projected at 7.0% in 2019 and 6.9% in 2020. A good performance in the agricultural sector will keep inflation below the 3% convergence threshold for the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU). The current account deficit is projected to stabilise at 2.8% in 2019, in connection with sustained imports of capital goods related to infrastructure projects.
