When Cote d’Ivoire emerged from conflict in 2012, the country and economy was in shambles. Becoming a preferred destination for investment was hard to imagine – but the new President had a vision and Endsight provided a roadmap. An MCC Compact was the charge. When we started, the country passed just 5 of the 20 MCC indicators. Now its passes 14 indiators, received a $525 million MCC grant, and was named by the Mo Ibrahim Index as the fastest reformer in the world. Now the Presidency has tasked Endsight to help Cote d’Ivoire to pass all 20 MCC indicators (which has never been done) and to create a similar methodology to attract private business and investment.
