Economy - overview:
Cote d'Ivoire is among the world's largest producers and exporters of coffee, cocoa beans, and palm oil. Consequently, the economy is highly sensitive to weather conditions and to fluctuations in international prices for these products. Despite government attempts to diversify the economy, it is still heavily dependent on agriculture and related activities, engaging roughly 68% of the population. Growth was negative in 2000-03 because of civil war. Political turmoil has continued to damage the economy since 2004, resulting in the loss of foreign investment. Cocoa remains the economy's dominate sector, but the government remains hopeful that ongoing exploration of Cote d'Ivoire's offshore oil reserves will result in significant production that could boost daily crude output from roughly 58,000 barrels per day (b/d) to more than 200,000 b/d by the end of the decade.
