BMI View : Newly revised data for Cote d'Ivoire's construction sector has changed the historic trend significantly , but forecasts remain relatively similar given the number of projects under way and in the pipeline. Between 2015 and 2020 we expect growth to average 7.8%, driven by major investments to develop the country's transport and power infrastructure. The biggest threat remains an uptick in political risk , but a significant deterioration in the political climate is not our core view.
A number of mega projects, in line with the country's USD22.8bn National Development Plan, mean that significant investment is taking place in the country's infrastructure sector. Government revenues are expected to remain conducive to investment, while private investment has been increasing. Cote d'Ivoire is experiencing a boom in investment in the transport and power sectors, while growing natural resource investment is creating additional demand for new capacity.
The National Development Plan will be financed through a combination of public and private financing, with the government looking to continue its impressive start in the public-private partnership (PPP) market to further fund infrastructure projects.
The state element of the NDP will be funded by the government's improving financial position, which is benefiting from numerous debt cancellations and growing tax revenues, in addition to growing revenues from gold mining and cocoa production. There is also longer-term potential for oil production, as offshore exploration takes off, while offshore natural gas production is already seeing strong growth.
Projects guiding our positive outlook for Cote d'Ivoire's infrastructure industry include:
The new Henri Konan Bedie bridge in Abidjan, which was officially opened in December 2014. The 1.5km bridge forms part of a new 6.7km road, which includes an interchange, two stretches of motorway and a 21-lane toll plaza. The bridge comprises two three-lane carriageways....
