The US Government’s Millennium Challenge Corporation has announced its intent to deploy a new strategic collaboration with Bechtel Infrastructure Corporation and the Government of Côte d’Ivoire, focusing on national infrastructure master planning. MCC CEO Mr Sean Cairncross joined Bechtel’s Regional President of Africa, Sir James Dutton, and Secretary General to the President of Côte d’Ivoire Minister Patrick Achi in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, today to sign a Memorandum of Understanding memorializing the partnership.

Mr Sean Cairncross said that “I am thrilled to join Bechtel Infrastructure Corporation and the Government of Côte d’Ivoire in signing this Memorandum of Understanding today in Abidjan. Infrastructure master planning is critical as we identify opportunities for coordinated and complementary investments among public sector, private sector, and civil society partners. MCC, Bechtel, and the Government of Côte d’Ivoire each bring a unique expertise and approach to this initiative and we look forward to an effective and successful collaboration.”

Bechtel intends to mobilize a team in the capital city Abidjan to work with MCC, alongside representatives from the Government of Côte d’Ivoire to develop a highly-effective infrastructure masterplan—one that could also serve as a template for countries across the region.
