AR DEC Supports AR World Trade Center to Successfully Host

Doing Business with Côte d'Ivoire Luncheon in Little Rock

 

On November 17, 2014, Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe opened the World Trade Center Arkansas' business, education, and trade forum with the West African country of Côte d'Ivoire held in Little Rock. The Arkansas District Export Council sponsored the event, and several DEC members attended and participated. “Doing Business with Côte d'Ivoire” enabled business leaders, investors, educators, and agricultural producers to explore the evolving political and regulatory landscape of this West African nation. The Côte d'Ivoire's delegation leader, Côte d'Ivoire Minister of Trade presided over discussion of how Arkansas business can assist in developing sustainable solutions for harnessing Côte d'Ivoire resources to meet the rapid domestic growth and educational foundation in the country and the region.

The Côte d'Ivoire government officials participating in the conference described the country’s general market entry strategy and procedures by specific industry sectors. Attendees were informed of recent and anticipated developments that impact where—and how—to develop new business opportunities in Côte d'Ivoire.
