Invest In Côte d'Ivoire - Digital Economy

Despite a challenging global economic context, Côte d’Ivoire stands out as an economic powerhouse in the region, with remarkable growth projected at +7.2% in 2023. 

An integral part of this dynamism is the rapidly advancing digital sector, expected to grow from $2 billion in 2021 to $5.5 billion by 2025. According to the Google-IFC report “e-Conomy Africa 2020”, this figure could quadruple by 2050 and represent 10% of the Ivorian GDP. 

As a result, the country aims to position itself as the digital hub of West Africa and make this key sector the driver of its economic structural transformation. The government has thus adopted a National Digital Strategy (SNCI 2025) with a budget of $3.15 billion, and both the national and foreign private sector are called upon to play their part. 

 

WATCH THE REPLAY

 

 

The AFRICA CEO FORUM, in partnership with Ecobank, is organizing the “Invest in Côte d’Ivoire – Digital Economy” online event with the aim of showcasing the investment opportunities offered by the country in this promising sector. 

A panel of leading industry actors will discuss the Ivorian digital ecosystem, from its high-potential digital markets to the country’s business-friendly regulatory frameworks. This will be followed by three invitation-only public-private workshops, during which investment opportunities will be highlighted the highly prospective areas of digital infrastructure, the start-up ecosystem and female entrepreneurship.
