Ivory Coast used to be a regional hub for business and attract foreign direct investment with cocoa and coffee as major export products. Representing 85% of the Gross National Product, the private sector is the backbone of the country. While Ivory Coast promotes investment, which encompasses the privatisation of public and state-owned companies, in most cases the government reserves an equity stake in the new organisation. The level of poverty and human development remains low. Ivory Coast is focusing more on developing education, improving governance, and exploring sustainable use of agricultural products and natural resources.
