“Trade Policy Reviews” analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - “key trade facts” - provides a visual overview of the WTO member’s major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of Côte d’Ivoire Guinea-Bissau and Togo.



Report by Côte d’Ivoire Guinea-Bissau and Togo

By ratifying the Final Act establishing the World Trade Organization in January 1995, Côte d’Ivoire became one of the WTO’s original Members. The country went on to submit its first trade policy review in that same year, since then it has undertaken various institutional, economic, financial and administrative reforms with a view to its progressive and positive integration into world trade. However, since 1999, it has experienced a cycle of socio-political instability, which has had the effect of slowing down its social and economic development.
