If the present calm trend continues in Ivory Coast and if the world community gives the same kind of support in coming years, Cote d’Ivoire may once again emerge as the hub of international commercial activities in west Africa. Country’s foreign trade is now almost normal and the main port is now ready to handle even the export items from land locked Burkina Faso and Mali. Raw Cashew importers are happy with the fast developments in the country’s export sector and satisfied with the quality of the preserved raw cashew nuts. But in the long run,the government should take more initiative  in improving raw cashew size and kernel out turn by providing proper education, technology and quality seeds to their farmers. Quantity improvement is possible only through quality improvement.
