Ivory Coast’s economy is expected to grow by 7.5% this year, in line with 7.4 percent last year, and medium-term growth will remain strong, the International Monetary Fund said on Tuesday.

The budget deficit is projected to converge to the regional norm of 3 percent in 2019, the IMF said in a review announcing the immediate disbursement of $133.9 million under a lending programme agreed in 2016.
