Speaking in the General Assembly as it continued its annual debate, President Alassane Ouattara said Côte d'Ivoire today is a nation with far ranging goals.

He said the country's objective is to have a democratic form of government.

"My country now is at peace and is working. It has regained the confidence of its partners as is demonstrated in particular (by) the return of the African Development Bank to Abidjan. Thanks to the cohesion of the citizens of Côte d'Ivoire, the solidity of national institutions and the reforms undertaken by the government, economic growth continues to be strong and in nearly two digits."   (27″)

President Outtara said as the country moves towards economic transformation and inclusive development it continues to strengthen national reconciliation.

He stressed the need to revive the feeling of solidarity and the national pact on which the nation of Côte d'Ivoire is based.
