BMI View : Between 2015 and 20 19 we expect growth in Cote d'Ivoire's construction sector to average 8.2 %, making it one of the strongest growth markets in West Africa. A significant project pipeline, developing PPP market and an economy less exposed to falling commodity prices will support growth. The biggest threat remains an uptick in political risk, especially in the ru n- up to the October 2015 elections .

Bouygues' units DTP Terrassement and Bouygues Travaux Publics will hold a 33% stake in the consortium, while Hyundai Rotem will also own a 33% stake. Keolis and Dongsan will hold 25% and 9%, respectively. Construction is expected to take five years and six months, with the first phase of the rail line expected to be completed in 2019.The Export-Import Bank of China has...
