The CICCGB in Partnership with the DIT and the CCI-CI is pleased to organise a Business Conference and Forum during the trade mission in London to showcase British and Ivorian products and services to open the way to new business frontiers.

Why Côte d’Ivoire?

Since 2012, Côte d’Ivoire has become one of the fastest growing countries in Africa indeed globally, with average growth over 7%. Côte d’Ivoire is a regional hub, member of the 15 member state ECOWAS and the largest economy in the Economic and Monetary Union of West African states.

The total trade in goods and services (ie exports plus imports) between the United Kingdom and Côte d’Ivoire amounted to £ 562 million in 2017, a 10% increase compared to 2016. Both countries want to see this growth continue.
