Cote d'Ivoire's declining economy

World's biggest cocoa producer is struggling to revive its economy ahead of presidential elections in November.

    Presidential elections in Cote d'Ivoire are just two weeks away and the focus is firmly on its struggling economy.

    The country is the world's biggest cocoa producer, but the sector is in decline. Much hope rests with the elections which could provide the political will needed to revive the industry.

    If the downward trend is not reversed Cote d'Ivoire faces losing its status as the world's number one producer - and the billions of dollars of annual income that goes with it.

    Al Jazeera's Folly Bah Thibault reports from Attenguie in Cote d'Ivoire.
