Summary:

This IMF Staff Report highlights robust economic growth in Côte d’Ivoire, which is projected to continue in 2018. Inflation remains subdued. The program aims to achieve a sustainable balance of payments position, foster inclusive growth and poverty reduction, and create fiscal space for investment in priority infrastructure and social projects. Strong economic performance since 2012, with average annual growth of 9 percent, reflected the economic recovery following political normalization, an improved business environment, a strong program of reforms, and supportive fiscal policy. A key policy challenge is to sustain robust growth and make it more inclusive and private sector–driven. Robust medium-term growth is expected to be supported by domestic demand.
