Overview of key market and policy developments and recommendations
Regulation plays a critical role in the development and spread of digital financial services (DFS). This paper offers an analysis of the regulatory framework for DFS in Côte d’Ivoire, including its coverage, its enabling features, and its gaps and obstacles.
The paper discusses priority areas for strengthening and reform, to be addressed at the national level and at the level of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU), of which Côte d’Ivoire is a member state. It aims to provide analysis that is relevant and useful to policy makers in Côte d’Ivoire and to others interested in DFS regulation and its links with financial inclusion.
