The port of San-Pédro is the second largest port in the country, right after the port of Abidjan. San-Pédro’s ideal geographical position combined with its dynamic industrial development has been the prime reason for a considerable part of Côte d’Ivoire’s industrial activity. The region also acts as the key gateway to Côte d’Ivoire’s export items, with plans for heavy investment in the transportation system.
The ZIC San-Pédro aims to catalyse the full-scale processing of cement, cashew, shea nut, rubber etc. Availability of inputs and shared resources in the zone helps the in-house manufacturing units optimize their value chain and reduce final production cost.
The zone unlocks the potential of multiple commercial farms to add value to their final product and add to the domestic production capacity of the region, while boosting export competitiveness. The dynamic infrastructure support offered to players within the zone helps them finetune their product based on global best practices and recommendations.
