According to the Bank’s website, the project consists of an institutional support operation that aims to achieve the structural transformation of the Ivorian economy and to strengthen the competitiveness of local enterprises, in particular SMEs, including those owned and managed by women. The programme will remove obstacles in the business climate in order to increase the inclusiveness and resilience of growth and ensure decent jobs and income for the population. It also aims to facilitate access to financing and guarantee mechanisms, particularly for women-run MSMEs. The PACA-CI strategy will, in the context of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), increase the value-added of national production and the market share of local enterprises, in a secure and climate-friendly environment. By strengthening the MSME ecosystem, PACA-CI will improve the business climate in the country and attract more foreign and local direct investment.
