Construction & Real Estate

Cote d’Ivoire 2020 - Construction & Real Estate

The construction of numerous large infrastructure projects has contributed considerably to economic expansion since 2012. The sector’s dynamism has attracted international companies, particularly Chinese firms, which have completed several projects in transport, logistics and energy. With major infrastructure projects nearing completion and others under way, the construction and public works sector is likely to remain a key contributor to the economy in the medium term. Activity has also benefitted from a real estate boom, with many new properties in the pipeline, especially around Abidjan. However, since the government is increasingly looking to private funding to realise its construction and real estate ambitions, delayed investment due to the Covid-19 pandemic may impede meeting targets in 2020. This chapter contains interviews with Bruno Nabagné Koné, Minister of Construction, Housing and Urban Planning; and Clyde Fakhoury, CEO, PFO Africa.
