IVORY COAST

Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) is a republic with a strong executive power personified in the President. Its de jure capital is Yamoussoukro and the official language is French. Côte d’Ivoire’s economy is largely market-based and relies heavily on agriculture, with smallholder cash crop production being dominant.

The country was originally known in English as Ivory Coast. In October 1985, the government requested that the country be known in every language as Côte d Ivoire, without a hyphen between the two words.

Maintaining close ties to France since independence in 1960, diversification of agriculture for export, and encouragement of foreign investment, has made Côte d’Ivoire one of the most prosperous of the tropical African states. However, in recent years Côte d’Ivoire has been subject to greater competition and falling prices in the global marketplace for its primary agricultural crops: coffee and cocoa.

Country Population: 17,654,843
Country Capital: Yamoussoukro
Country Currency: West African CFA franc
