Cote d'Ivoire Business Forecast Report Q1 2015, New Report Launched

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Cote d'Ivoire Business Forecast Report Q1 2015” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2014 -- We remain bullish on the growth prospects for the Ivorian economy, forecasting that real GDP growth will average 8.0% annually over the next five years. However, with contentious elections in October 2015 and the continued threat posed by Ebola, risks to growth over the near term are weighted firmly to the downside. President Alassane Ouattara’s already strong chances of securing a second term have increased following the announcement that the Parti Démocratiques de la Côte d’Ivoire (PDCI) – part of the ruling coalition with Ouattara’s Rassemblement des Républicains (RDR) – will back the president in the October 2015 general elections.

Côte d’Ivoire’s return to political stability in 2012 has had a restorative effect on the country’s public finances and over the next five years we expect it to run a moderate, but sustainable fiscal deficit in the region of 2.0-3.0% of GDP. Headline inflation in Côte d’Ivoire will remain low by sub-Saharan African standards over the next six-to-twelve months on the back of subdued food prices and a stable currency. These factors will see inflation in the West African country continue to average below the regional central bank’s 3.0% target level.
