Côte d’Ivoire

Cocoa and cocoa-based products represent a significant portion of current exports in Côte d’Ivoire.  The Trade Hub aims to provide support to the cocoa value chain and others, such as apparel, by working with private sector actors and expand production while improving overall quality.  The project also collaborates with financial institutions to encourage investment within these value chains at affordable interest rates.  The Trade Hub will facilitate economic relations with the United States through the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).
