COTE D'IVOIRE: A SITE FOR THOSE SEARCHING FOR INVESTMENT PARTNERS
Financiers and private sector promotors now have a site that they can use to find investment partners. The NGO Union pour le progrès (UPP),which specialises in the promotion of the tourism and economic potential of the country, has launched a new site to promote its work called www.côtedivoire-potentialites.org. The site has two purposes. Firstly to list and promote projects being promoted by Ivorians to national and international investors and secondly to find those investors who might take equity in Ivorian projects. UPP's President Yao Noé believes that the site will be useful because it will allow companies to make a direct relationship with potential investors without the need for intermediaries. You cannot but help admire the organisation's sense of optimism, given the current political circumstances in the country.
