Côte d’Ivoire

As the world’s top exporter of cocoa and raw cashew nuts, a net exporter of oil, and with a significant manufacturing sector, Côte d’Ivoire is the largest economy in the West African Economic and Monetary Union. The country’s influence on the sub-region is also significant due to its size of 21 million people, its relatively high income per capita at US$990 in 2009, and its role in transit trade for landlocked neighboring countries.
