Arise IIP signed a public-private partnership with the government of Côte d’Ivoire in June 2022 to develop Zones Industrielles de Côte d’Ivoire (ZIC). It is an integrated industrial zone dedicated to value addition and import substitution in Côte d’Ivoire with the clustering of agro-allied businesses that are guided by the potential offered by industrialisation.
Spread across an area of 920 hectares, the zone will lead to the creation of thousands of jobs for the Ivorian youth while attracting investments from around the world. Developed as commercial epicentre, the ZIC ensures that every function adds to the final value of the product. From the central processing zones to the storage units, the ZIC provides end-to-end support to aspirational businesses.
