Ivory Coast to Mauritius: Let's do some business together

The Minister of Tourism of Ivory Coast, Mr. Siandou Fofana has invited Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth to further expand joint economic ventures between the two countries.

He reportedly told Jugnauth about the keenness of his Government to partner with Mauritius to “unlock mutually benefitting opportunities for local enterprises to face the ongoing challenges on the global landscape.”

The Minister said that Ivory Coast is the world’s leading producer of various raw materials including cocoa, kola nut and rubber. He discussed with the Prime Minister the possibility for Mauritius to join the value chain of this economy.

Late last week, the business communities in Mauritius and Ivory Coast held a two days Business Forum at Port-Louis to further enhance economic cooperation between the two countries.

The event was marked by the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Côte d’Ivoire (CCI.CI) and the Mauritius Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI).

The Forum was jointly organised by the Embassy of the Republic of Ivory Coast in Mauritius with residence in Pretoria, the “Centre de Promotion des Investissements en Côte d’Ivoire’ (CEPICI), and the CCI.CI, in the context of the official visit of a high-level business delegation comprising key Ministers from the Ivory Coast.

Agreements that exist between the two countries include: A Framework Agreement on Economic, Financial and Technical Cooperation; an Agreement on the Promotion and Protection of Investments and; a Memorandum of Understanding on Aviation Services.

The Agreement on the Promotion and Protection of Investments signed on 20 April 2016 will soon become effective.
