Guarantees Offered to the Investor
The new Code of 2012 offers to investors important guarantees. In this regard :
- It reaffirms the principle of free transfer outside the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire of all income generated by the investments and particularly the surplus balance resulting from the winding up of a company, if need be ;
- It authorises any legal proceedings or arbitration appeal deemed necessary by the investor to settle any claims resulting from the implementation of the Code
- It also provides an administrative settlement directly before the Committee created for this purpose, the National Committee for Investment Promotion (COM-INVEST) which aims at enforcing the provisions of the Code, especially those relating to deadlines.
