Event Overview

INTERNATIONAL AND REGIONAL EXPERTS TACKLE THE KEY CHALLENGES THAT COTE D’IVOIRE FACES TO REACH EMERGING MARKET STATUS BY 2020 AT HIGH LEVEL FORUM IN ABIDJAN.

 

The Government of Côte d’Ivoire, led by the Ministry of Economy and Finance, and Euromoney Conferences hosted over 220 attendees at the inaugural Euromoney Côte d’Ivoire Conference on 28 and 29 March in Abidjan.

 

In recent years, Côte d’Ivoire has been a success story in a challenging economic global environment.  Nevertheless, the next few years will be critical for the development of the country’s economy and financial sector to achieve emerging market status by 2020.  Senior government officials, regulators and economists joined local and international financiers and business leaders in Abidjan for two days of high level discussions and networking.

 

The conference started with a series of high level addresses delivered by H.E. Mr Adam Koné, Minister of Economy and Finance and H.E. Mr Daniel Kablan Duncan, Vice President of Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, who then joined Christopher Garnett, Senior External Adviser, Euromoney Conferences for a candid interview.
