Cote d'Ivoire: Ending the Culture of Corruption

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Cote d'Ivoire, Economics & Business, Governance, Law, Politics

Y. Doumbia  writes about the measures taken by the Ouattara Administration to halt corruption [1] [fr] : ” Under Ouattara today, the situation has radically changed. The state budget is managed with greater parsimony. Additionally, Ouattara also did away with the BNETD (the National Bureau for Technical Research and Development). The agency allowed for ministers to hire non-governmental experts for specific projects. This agency was in fact used by ministers to create fictional positions and then collect the allocated salaries themselves.”
