Although it is one of the smallest countries of Africa, the Côte d'Ivoire is a country of extraordinary cultural richness. While the southern coastal area has for the last several decades served as an archetype of prosperity and modernisation, the northern and western regions of the Côte d'Ivoire are home to two fascinating and vital traditional cultures-the Senufo and the Dan. The country has good roads, great beaches and outstanding artwork. Korhogo, 55 km west of Ferkessedougou is the center of Senoufo culture and one of the country’s major craft centers. Ivorian carvings are being sold in the West for a ten-fold of the selling price of the producer. Artists Traore Sine started a factory building Djembé fola, the bongo, made of Lenké, the secret wood or devil's wood. Well known are toiles (rough painted textiles). The Man region is the draw card culture of the Dan people. Their masks, which are used in initiation ceremonies, and their stilt dancers, are famous. Superb beaches and delicious seafood can be found in Sassandra, 250 km west of Abidjan. French is the official language, although Baoule and other local languages are widely used. DIOULA language is used for trade. The main ethnics groups according a national survey in 1998 are: First Baoulé, Second Senouho, third Dioula, and fourth Agny. Further dialects are Bété, Gouro, Yacouba, Guéré, Wobê, Agni, Lobi, Malinké, Gagou, Abouré, Ebrié, Attié, Abron, Godié, Neyo and Adioukrou.

The bigger cities are:

Abidjan in the south with 3'000'000 inhabitants
Bouake in central IC: 850'000
Daloa in the West: 300'000
San-Pedro in the South West: 250'000
Korhogo in the North: 250'000
Yamoussoukro in the Center 250'000

He also steered the affairs of the Secretariat during the transition period to the African Union.

"Often perceived as Permanently "aid-dependent" or a "burden," Africa has in fact got a grip on itself, pressing ahead with economic rationalisation This open-minded commitment should be encouraged by the international Community".
