Unlock exceptional investment opportunities in Ivory Coast, the undisputed economic leader of West Africa!

Strategically positioned for regional dominance, Ivory Coast offers easy access to major markets like Liberia, Guinea Conakry, Burkina Faso, Mali and Ghana.

 

Beyond its location, Ivory Coast's fertile land is a treasure trove of agricultural wealth. The nation reigns supreme as the world's leading Cashew and Cocoa producer. Coffee and rubber plantations further diversify this agricultural powerhouse. But Ivory Coast's wealth extends beyond agriculture. Vast mineral reserves of gold, manganese, and iron ore present exciting exploration and mining opportunities (USGS). An established oil & gas industry contributes significantly to government revenue.
