En Côte d’Ivoire, le dynamisme retrouvé de l’économie attire les grands groupes

Le Monde
23 mars 2016


Premier producteur mondial de cacao, la Côte d'Ivoire a bénéficié ces deux dernières années de récoltes record et d'un cours élevé avec des fèves négociées à plus de 3000 dollars la tonne.

A Abidjan, les sportifs soucieux de leur look ont maintenant l’embarras du choix. En quelques mois, deux grandes enseignes de sport françaises ont fait leurs premiers pas dans la capitale économique ivoirienne. Go Sport a pris ses quartiers en octobre 2015 dans le centre commercial Cap Sud et Decathlon a ouvert, en janvier, sa première e-boutique sur le site Jumia, leader du commerce en ligne sur le continent africain.

Ces implantations, les premières en Afrique subsaharienne, sont conçues comme de véritables têtes de pont. « Decathlon profite de notre implantation pour arriver rapidement sur le marché et le tester », explique Francis Dufay, directeur de Jumia Côte d’Ivoire. Bien implanté, cet « Amazon africain » veut devenir la clé qui ouvre la porte du marché ivoirien.

« La Côte d’Ivoire est le hub économique de la sous-région francophone. C’est un choix évident pour toute grande marque française souhaitant ensuite s’implanter dans d’autres pays d’Afrique de l’Ouest », assure M. Dufay.

Les exemples ne manquent pas : la Fnac a ouvert son premier magasin à Abidjan en novembre 2015, Carrefour y a accueilli, en décembre, ses premiers clients, et le chocolatier Cémoi y avait inauguré, en mai, une seconde usine. Cette chocolaterie, la première du pays, doit approvisionner en confiseries toute la région.

Cet engouement s’explique par un chiffre : 10,3 % de croissance en 2015. Dévoilé lundi 21 mars par Alassane Ouattara, le président de la République, ce chiffre excède celui des experts du Fonds monétaire international. En visite fin février dans le pays, ils avaient conclu à une progression de 8,6 % du produit intérieur brut (PIB).

« La fiabilité des statistiques est assez incertaine, mais que ce soit 10,3 % ou 8,6 % ne change pas grand-chose : la Côte d’Ivoire est bel et bien sortie de la période chaotique qui a suivi l’élection présidentielle de 2010 », estime Jean-Louis Daudier, économiste à Coface, assureur-crédit et expert des risques commerciaux.

Amorcer un cercle vertueux

Après une stagnation d’une décennie, l’économie ivoirienne a redémarré sur les chapeaux de roues à partir de 2012, avec une croissance moyenne de 9 % par an. Selon Nielsen, une société spécialisée dans l’étude des consommateurs, le pays est devenu le plus attractif de la région juste après le Nigeria. L’attentat, qui a frappé le 13 mars Grand-Bassam, une station balnéaire proche d’Abidjan, ne devrait pas remettre en cause ce dynamisme. « Le climat des affaires s’est amélioré, et la situation politique est stabilisée depuis les élections d’octobre 2015 : tout cela encourage les investissements privés », souligne Jean-Louis Daudier.

Dans l’espoir d’amorcer un cercle vertueux et d’attirer des entreprises, le gouvernement a, par ailleurs, lancé un grand programme de modernisation des infrastructures avec la construction d’un grand barrage hydroélectrique à Soubré, l’extension du port d’Abidjan et la modernisation de l’aéroport international.

Un vent favorable souffle aussi sur l’agriculture ivoirienne qui représente 22 % de son PIB et la moitié de ses exportations. Premier producteur mondial de cacao, la Côte d’Ivoire a bénéficié ces deux dernières années de récoltes record et d’un cours élevé : les précieuses fèves se sont négociées à plus de 3 000 dollars la tonne (2 677 euros) une bonne partie de l’année 2015. « C’est l’une des rares matières premières qui ne s’est pas retournée depuis 2014 », souligne Stéphane Alby, économiste chez BNP Paribas. Résultat : en 2015, les agriculteurs ont empoché 1 000 francs CFA (1,50 euro) par kilo de cacao contre 850 francs CFA lors de la dernière campagne.

Reste un défi : partager les fruits de cette croissance. Selon un rapport publié en décembre par la Banque mondiale, deux tiers des travailleurs ont un revenu mensuel moyen de quelque 65 000 francs CFA par mois (100 euros), loin derrière les 350 000 francs CFA du tiers le plus nanti, les plus privilégiés étant les salariés de la finance (2,3 millions) et du secteur minier (1,6 million). Pour ne pas rester « un pays à deux vitesses », la Côte d’Ivoire doit offrir des emplois de qualité à se population, avertit la Banque mondiale.

$200M Cocody bay project to transform Abidjan city



Cote d'Ivoire's government plans to roll out a number of ambitious large capital infrastructure projects worth $ 49 B over the next five years. Under the country's national development plan, over 90 of these projects will be privately funded, but others will be unique collaborations with other governments, such as a lagoon rehabilitation project, where the state has partnered with Morocco to modernize its waterways.

49 billion!

I cry for Ghana

CIV could rival Kenya in economic development and infrastructure.

It feels like the early 70s again!

Kenya and CIV were among the few non-oil countries which exhibited strong growth post-independence. CIV grew at 9% (from a lower base) and Kenya around 5-6% in the immediate post-independent years.

And Ghana is crashing like it did under Nkrumah.

Too much De Ja Vu

Rabat s’allie à Abidjan pour réhabiliter la baie de Cocody

Le Monde Afrique
24 mars 2016


Une affiche publicitaire à Abidjan, en 2013, vantant la coopération de la Côte d'Ivoire et du Maroc.


« L’Afrique doit faire confiance à l’Afrique. » La petite phrase, glissée par le roi marocain Mohammed VI lors d’une visite à Abidjan en février 2014, n’avait rien d’anodin. Elle souligne l’une des ambitions économiques du Maroc : mettre le cap sur l’Afrique et y investir à tour de bras.

A commencer par la Côte d’Ivoire. En 2015, près d’un quart des investissements internationaux réalisés chez le premier producteur mondial de cacao venait du Maroc, faisant du royaume chérifien le premier investisseur étranger du pays. Depuis 2015, un chantier titanesque, symbole du renforcement de cette coopération économique ivoiro-marocaine, fait parler de lui. Le projet de sauvegarde et de valorisation de la baie de Cocody, dans la capitale économique, Abidjan.

Un chantier de plus de 100 milliards de francs CFA

Une série d’aménagements sur quatre ans, au cœur de la capitale économique ivoirienne, coûtant plus de 100 milliards de francs CFA (152 millions d’euros). « L’objectif principal est de restaurer l’écosystème de la baie de Cocody, et plus largement de la lagune Ebrié », précise Ibrahim Touré, conseiller technique du Bureau national d’études techniques et de développement (BNETD), l’organisme ivoirien chargé, avec le Conseil ingénierie et développement (CID) marocain, de superviser la partie technique des travaux.


La quartier d'affaires du Plateau, au bord de la lagune Ebrié et en face de Cocody.

Depuis l’ouverture du canal de Vridi pour relier le port d’Abidjan au golfe de Guinée, au début des années 1950, les courants de la lagune abidjanaise ont ralenti et ses eaux ont stagné. Avec l’urbanisation galopante de ces dix dernières années, la baie de Cocody, symbole de la capitale économique bordant le quartier des affaires, a vu les déchets s’amonceler et les baigneurs sortir de l’eau.

Une pollution visible et gênante pour le président ivoirien Alassane Ouattara, qui entend profiter de l’attrait croissant des grands groupes pour Abidjan afin de réaliser son objectif de longue date : faire de la Côte d’Ivoire un pays émergent à l’horizon 2020. « C’est la concrétisation d’un projet de grande importance économique et stratégique pour la ville d’Abidjan », avait souligné le premier ministre, Daniel Kablan Duncan, lors du lancement officiel de la première phase des travaux, le 18 janvier.

Environnement et retombées économiques

La première étape, d’une durée de neuf mois et d’un coût de 10 milliards de francs CFA, consiste à réaménager les berges afin de protéger la lagune contre les inondations. « Maintenant que le nettoyage des eaux est terminé, nous allons créer une corniche pour les endiguer, mais aussi élargir les boulevards lagunaires », précise Saïd Zarrou, directeur général de Marchica Med, société d’Etat marocaine chargée de conduire le projet en collaboration avec le gouvernement ivoirien. Un aménagement aux ambitions de protection de l’environnement qui a aussi un objectif purement pratique : fluidifier la circulation sur les routes bordant la baie de Cocody, souvent embouteillées.

D’ici à 2019, date de livraison prévue du projet, le carrefour de l’Indénié, réputé pour ses inondations, sera transformé. Ouvrage emblématique du projet de valorisation de la baie, un imposant viaduc, reliant le quartier de Cocody (est) à l’autre rive, côté Plateau (ouest), sera également construit. Sans oublier des barrages, un port de plaisance, des espaces de loisir et des installations commerciales.

Afin de boiser ce nouvel environnement présenté sur les plans comme une succession de constructions modernes bordées par une large promenade longeant des eaux turquoise, le gouvernement ivoirien entend créer ce qu’il appelle une « coulée verte ». Un parc d’une centaine d’hectares aménagé le long de la lagune.

Ce projet multifacettes, original dans la sous-région de par sa gestion intégrée, le gouvernement ivoirien entend en tirer des avantages économiques et ainsi renforcer le tourisme et l’attractivité économique d’Abidjan. « C’est un des projets phares du second mandat d’Alassane Ouattara », ajoute Ibrahim Touré, du BNETD.

Exporter le modèle de coopération Sud-Sud

Car les travaux de la baie de Cocody ne sont que la partie visible d’une plus vaste entreprise destinée à revaloriser l’intégralité de la lagune d’Ebrié, qui s’étend sur près de 500 km2. « Nous allons bientôt lancer les consultations pour nous étendre jusqu’à Grand-Bassam, et nous avons encore d’autres grands projets en perspective », s’enthousiasme Saïd Zarrou. Le montage financier est réalisé par Attijariwafa Bank, une société marocaine qui, d’acquisition en acquisition, poursuit son expansion sur le continent africain.

Preuve du tropisme africain grandissant du Maroc, Marchica Med a ouvert, le 22 mars, une première succursale sur le continent… à Abidjan. Et ce n’est qu’un début. « Abidjan est la capitale de l’Afrique de l’Ouest. L’émergence ivoirienne va profiter aux pays voisins, assure Saïd Zarrou. Si demain d’autres gouvernements souhaitent collaborer avec nous, nous irons. » Premier investisseur en Côte d’Ivoire et plus largement dans les zones économiques de la Communauté économique et monétaire des Etats de l’Afrique centrale et de l’Union économique et monétaire ouest-africaine, le Maroc a lancé le coup d’envoi de la propagation de son modèle de coopération Sud-Sud en Afrique.

Chinese deputy minister of trade, Qian Keming just concluded a business visit to Senegal that sought to build on gains made at the China Africa summit in Johannesburg last December. Senegalese President Macky Sall was among African Presidents, who met Chinese President Xi Jinping, as trade ties between Africa and China rise.

It's not part of the article but a personal comment of the now banned poster Brisavoine, a french nostalgic of colonial times and a fervent supporter of a lingisticually, culturally, military and economically french dominated Africa. He doesn't give a damn about Africa and the well-being of africans it's all about "le rayonnement de la grande France" for him. You can understand why he hates Algeria. It seems he still posts through another member. : nuts:

Dangote Cement starts constructing cement grinding plant in Cote d’Ivoire


The Dangote Cement Plc has commenced the construction of a new cement grinding plant in Cote d’Ivoire. The cement plant will produce 3 million metric tonnes of cement per annum.

The cement plant is being erected on over 60 hectares of land, next to the New Industrial Park in Yongbon, a city just outside Abidjan, the nation’s capital.

The grinding plant is made up of 2 lines and when completed each line will produce 1.5million metric tonnes of cement. The plant production is expected to double the total capacity of local cement production in the francophone West African nation. The plant will also raise the country’s total local cement production capacity by over 100%.

However, the plant will utilise power off the grid and create direct and indirect jobs for over 3,000 people within the nation and other West African countries.

According to Devakumar Edwin, Dangote Group Executive Director, Strategy, Projects and Portfolio Management, the Cote d’Ivoire project will be completed in 18 months’ time at a cost of US$200m. He further said the project has greatly aroused a lot of interest from both the government and people of Cote d’Ivoire. AlsoNigerian experts will be deployed to carryout initial training of local manpower and skill transfer.

The Cote d’Ivoire cement plant project comes after the company yet again announced the groundbreaking ceremony of a new six million metric tonnes per annum Greenfield cement plant in Okpella, Edo State as well as 6 million metric tonnes per annum capacity plant in Itori, Ogun State.

The project is being undertaken by AyokiFabricon, a mechanical and civil engineering company based in Pune, India. Tyssen Krupp, a German steel firm is also a sub-contractor.

Ayokiwas established in 1984 andhas been involved in fabrication, erection and commissioning of cement, boiler, distillery,power, sugar, and material handling projects both in India and abroad. The company has executed fabrication, erection and commissioning services of several plants for their clients such as Aditya Birla Group, Lafarge, JK cement Group, Jaypee Group and Ambuja Cements.

Dangote Cement Plc current local output production is at 31.25mmtpa, raising it to a total 41.25mmtpa. However, Okpella, Edo State and Itori, Ogun state cement plants are expectedto add 12 million metric tonnes per annum (mmtpa).

The Okpella plant will have two cement lines which will churn out 3mmtpa each, while the Itori plant will deliver approximately 3mmtpa from two production lines. Both plants are expected to come on stream within the next three years.

Dangote Cement Plc expansion drive is targeted at expanding its spread nationwide and reducing the transportation cost component of its operations. The new investments will rather lower the production cost bring about a future reduction in the price of cement, and generate employment opportunities for youths of the host communities.

Bolloré Group probed over west Africa port deals

French authorities have searched the headquarters of​ Bolloré Group as part of a sprawling investigation looking into the granting of a number of port concessions in west Africa.

French prosecutors recently started looking into a possible relationship between the Bolloré Group, run by French billionaire Vincent Bolloré, and Francis Perez, the president of the Barcelona-based Pefaco Group, said two people familiar with the inquiry.

Pefaco, which runs casinos and hotels in Africa, has been under investigation for four years by the French financial crimes unit.
Now prosecutors are trying to determine whether Mr Perez helped Bolloré Group’s African logistics arm win a concession for the port of Conakry in Guinea, granted in 2011, and another for the Lomé Port in Togo in 2010. The searches, which became public on Tuesday, are part of that effort.
Bolloré Group said in a statement, after the searches were reported by France’s Le Monde newspaper, that Pefaco and its leaders were “completely unknown” to the company.


It added that the port activities required “considerable investment” and that Bolloré Group was chosen “exclusively” based on its technical know-how and ability to carry out the operation. The company operates 17 ports in Africa


Bolloré Group confirmed that searches of the group’s headquarters in Puteaux, on the western outskirts of Paris, were carried out on Friday.
Pefaco said: “Pefaco has no relations with the Bolloré Group or its port activities in Africa”, adding that the company was “co-operating fully with the French investigation”.

Bolloré Africa Logistics has become a powerful force in Africa over several decades with 25,000 employees and 10m sq m of warehouses, workshops and offices.


It has rail concessions in Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Benin. In 2013 a project was launched for the west Africa rail loop to connect Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Niger, Benin, Togo and Nigeria.

Havas, the communications agency owned by the Bolloré Group, also operates in Africa and has advised President Alpha Condé in Guinea and President Faure Gnassimbé in Togo.


Bolloré Group, which has sales of €10.6bn a year, also has a 14.4 per cent stake in Vivendi, which owns Universal Music Group and broadcaster Canal Plus. Vincent Bolloré was appointed Vivendi chairman in 2014.
Pefaco installs and operates slot machines in gaming halls and bars in Africa. It has more than 280 gaming halls and 350 partner bars in 13 countries.
The company also designs, finances, builds and operates hotels in central and western Africa. Two of its hotels are operational in the Republic of the Congo and another two are under construction.

African nations with highest FDI for new projects in 2015

(Ecofin Agency) - Kenya is the African nation with the highest level of new projects funded with foreign direct investment (FDI) in 2015, a report published by Financial Times shows. 84 new projects were announced over the year, thus 47% more than in 2014.

East Africa’s top economy is followed by Ghana who recorded a 21% growth or 40 new projects.

Nigeria comes third with a 19% growth or 51 new projects funded with foreign capitals.

Egypt also recorded a modest growth (14%) in the number of new projects funded with foreign investments. Though modest, it still represents 59 projects.

In terms of value, Egypt, in Middle East and Africa, is the nation which has captured the most foreign direct investments for new projects, totalling $14.5 billion. However, this su mis 19% lower than what the country received in 2014.

Nigeria was second in terms of monetary value with $8.8 billion.

Morocco had $4.6 billion and Cote d’Ivoire, first among French-speaking countries from sub Sarahan Africa, got $3.5 billion of foreign investments.

Financial Times’ ranking just like UNCTD (UN Conference for Trade and Development) tends to present to show shifts in foreign direct investments worldwide, only that, FT’s focuses on new projects that attracted these investments.

Considering this, concerns arise over some data. Truly, number of new projects were funded in the the fossil energies sector across Africa, in Angola, Uganda, or Mozambique namely. This goes against the commitment to bring global warming down taken in Paris at the recent COP 21 talks in December 2015 and then again in April 2016 in New-York.

Cotton : Mali scales down forecast by 100,000 tons

(Ecofin Agency) - Mali just revealed it has scaled down by at least 100,000 tons its forecast for cotton output this season. Previously expecting 750-800 thousand tons, the West African nation now estimates it will produce 650,000 tons.

Textile Development Company of Mali (CMDT in French) who previously made the announcement did not give reasons to back its decision to revise the forecast. In the case where actual output fits the forecast, Mali would still have produced about 150,000 tons more than the previous season when it recorded late rains that impaired harvest and delayed ginning.

Let’s recall that during the previous season, all major cotton producers had their output fall. Production in Burkina Faso fell by 18% to 581,000 tons. Cote d’Ivoire’s plunged 30% to 310,000 tons.
