The word of the Delegate General
Under the Leadership of His Excellency, Mr. Alassane Dramane OUATTARA, the Head of State, Cote D’Ivoire has risen from the 2011 Post-Election crisis. Under the leadership and foresight of the President of the Republic, this transition from the crisis is a remarkable feat that can also be attributed to the strong viable economy that has become the legacy of the Father of the Ivoirian Nation, the late President Felix Houphouët-Boigny.
. After a decade of economic, political and social turmoil, the page has been turned. Today Côte d’Ivoire is dedicated and committed to making strong economic strides to be becoming an emerging country by 2020.The country possesses the human and material capital to make this a reality. Furthermore, the country has the support of many in making sure that progress becomes the new chapter in Cote D’Ivoire. After all, “Côte d’Ivoire is the friend of all and the enemy of none.”
The efforts in promoting the Ivorian Economy began in the technical services of the Embassies. This includes, the Agricultural advisers, economic advisers, Representatives of the Center for the promotion of investments in Cote d’Ivoire (CEPICI), etc…
It is in order to turn the pages on the shortcomings of these systems that the ongoing reform undertaken these last years has resulted in the establishment of the ECONOMIC PROMOTION BUREAU. This is headed by a Delegate General designated by the Minister for Economy and Finances. The choice in leadership has been intentional in demonstrating Cote D’ivoire’s values and priorities in economic advancement. Thus, Cote D’Ivoire is committed to make efforts in Economic promotion abroad consistent, coherent, disciplined, efficient and more specific. These efforts will be forced in the United States of America, in Canada and in Mexico.
