  • Description

    THE IVORY COAST MINISTER OF ECONOMICS AND FINANCE, MR. KONAN BEDIE, RECENTLY OPENED A U.S. PRODUCTS FAIR IN ABIDJAN. MR. BEDIE WAS ACCOMPANIED AT THE CEREMONY BY THE UNITED STATES AMBASSADOR TO THE IVORY COAST, MR. GEORGE MORGAN.

    WITH IMPORT TAXES ON AMERICAN-MADE GOODS AS HIGH AS 75%, THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT HAVE A STRONG FOOTHOLD IN THE IVORY COAST, BUT IT DOES MANAGE TO SELL A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF COMPUTER EQUIPMENT AND HEAVY MACHINERY.

    A LOAN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND THE IVORY COAST, FOR THE BUILDING OF THE NEW BANDAMA DAM, HAS INCREASED THE SALES OF HEAVY MACHINERY MANUFACTURED IN THE UNITED STATES, AND AMERICAN EXPORTERS ARE HOPING THAT IN THE NEAR FUTURE IMPORT TAXES ON THEIR GOODS WILL BE LOWERED.

    FOR THE AMERICANS, THE IVORY COAST OFFERS A SUBSTANTIAL MARKET -- IT IS UNIQUE AMONG AFRICAN COUNTRIES IN THAT IT CAN SHOW A SUBSTANTIAL SURPLUS EVERY YEAR.
