Côte d'Ivoire or Ivory Coast, officially the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire, is a country in West Africa. Côte d'Ivoire borders Liberia and Guinea to the west, Mali and Burkina Faso to the north, Ghana to the east, and the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.
Cote d'Ivoire is heavily dependent on agriculture and related activities, which engage roughly 68% of the population. Cote d'Ivoire is the world's largest producer and exporter of cocoa beans and a significant producer and exporter of coffee and palm oil. Consequently, the economy is highly sensitive to fluctuations in international prices for these products, and, to a lesser extent, in climatic conditions. Cocoa, oil, and coffee are the country's top export revenue earners, but the country is also producing gold. The GDP knew a growth of more than 2 % in 2008, and about 4 % a year in 2009 and 2010. The current political situation made the harbour volumes fall in the port of Abidjan.
