In its commitment to promote employment and the private sector in Côte d’Ivoire, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, through Invest for Jobs and Business Scouts for Development, has financed the study “Textile, confection et mode en Côte d’Ivoire” to provide Ivorian and German/European companies with useful information on this promising sector.
With a production of 558 000 tons in 2020-2021, Côte d’Ivoire is one of the leading producers of cotton fiber in Africa. This West African country, economic leader of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEOMA), has all the potential assets to interest the world’s major textile brands and industries.
The global textile value chain is driven by large corporate buyers, which are usually wholesalers, major fashion and accessory brands. They are looking for local and international garment manufacturers able to meet their specifications (quality, quantity, respect of deadlines ...), and this at a competitive cost. Côte d’Ivoire has the potential to improve its competitiveness with other major countries in the sector.
The study “Textile, confection et mode en Côte d’Ivoire” compiles a range of information to increase knowledge about this economic sector, where little reliable and structured information is available. The 85-page document also sheds light on the potential for job creation in this sector as well as on the possibilities of partnerships between Ivorian and German/European companies for prospective investments in Côte d’Ivoire.
