Did you know that Côte d'Ivoire is one of the top traders of cashew nuts?
Renowned broadcaster Lee Kasumba is in Abidjan this week as part of her #AfricaConnected with Standard Bank journey. She is exploring its government's biggest business pursuits and investments.
Kasumba says the government is working on creating more jobs through the cashew nut sector.
Currently, Côte d'Ivoire is one of the largest exporters of cashew nuts to the rest of the world.— Lee Kasumba
The biggest challenge is that they export it raw and so the whole production is never done in Côte d'Ivoire. Its only done at a capacity of 20%.— Lee Kasumba
Kasumba says the Côte d'Ivoire government is working towards launching its own airline.
