Tridge summary

The strategic plans for the recovery of poultry farming and the transformation of aquaculture in Côte d'Ivoire aim to increase production and promote local consumption. Poultry farming has seen significant growth in recent years, with local supply covering most of the national demand.

However, there are challenges in terms of biosecurity and market sales, and efforts are needed to improve traceability and customs checks.
