L’objectif de ce papier est de réexaminer les déterminants de la croissance économique en Côte d’Ivoire afin de proposer des mesures pour les pouvoirs publics. Pour ce faire nous utilisons les données provenant de la Banque mondiale (2008), la division des statistiques des Nations Unies, et de l’ICRG couvrant la période 1980-2006. La vérification empirique à partir d’un modèle structurel appliqué sur les données de séries temporelles montre des résultats globalement significatifs. En effet, il ressort de ces résultats que la gouvernance techniciste et la gouvernance démocratique se révèlent être les mécanismes importants par lesquels les déterminants de la croissance se transmettent à la croissance économique. Ce qui amène à définir des politiques susceptibles de stimuler la croissance économique à travers la mise en place de structures aptes à aider à l’installation de pratiques de bonne gouvernance. The aim of this paper is to re-examine the determinants of economic growth in Côte d’Ivoire. We use the 2008 world development indicators of the World Bank, Statistics Division of the United Nations and ICRG over the period 1980-2006. The empirical verification, from a structural model based, on time series data shows overall significant results. Indeed, it comes out from these results that the technicist governance and the democratic governance are proving to be important mechanisms by which the growth determinants are transmitted to economic growth. Thus, this leads to the definition of politics likely to reinforce the economic growth towards the starting up structures qualified to help to the settlement of sound governance policies.(Full text in french)
