In a recent visit to the country of Chad, Mitsuhiro Furusawa of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) discussed a number of subjects with policymakers and stakeholders.
"I very much look forward to productive meetings with President [Idriss] Déby and his teams as they address important challenges, notably the combined effects of a sharp and persistent decline in international oil prices and elevated regional security threats," Furusawa said prior to his trip.
Furusawa stated that even though there are challenges facing the country, the IMF was ready to assist where it was able.
During his visit, Furusawa met with President Deby Itno as well as other important individuals and representatives.
"Cote d’Ivoire has achieved an impressive economic performance over the past four years, with growth averaging 8.9 percent per year. I commend the authorities for this accomplishment and look forward to our discussions," Furusawa said.
Mr. Furusawa also planned to discuss the positive growth of the economy and methods for maintaining such patterns.
