About Côte d’Ivoire

Côte d’Ivoire is home to a growing economy, a flourishing agricultural, mining, and extractive sectors, and a thriving export market. Located in Western Africa, it has an extensive coastline, with one of the largest fishing ports in Africa.

Abidjan, located on the coast, is the economic capital of the country, and Yamoussoukro in the north, representing the legislative capital. The majority of the population is distributed in and around urban centers on the Atlantic coast, with a sparsely populated northern countryside. However, some countryside areas see higher concentrations along major transport routes, such as the Abidjan-Ouagadougou railway, which remains an important trade itinerary; notably passing through the northern town of Bouaké. 

The Ivorian population is one of the youngest in Africa, with almost 60% of the population under 25. There is therefore very high potential for Côte d’Ivoire to leverage the entry into the workforce of this cohort with the right investments in education and healthcare.
