ABIDJAN May 3 Ivory Coast has selected five
international banks to manage a Eurobond issue planned for some
time in the second quarter of this year, two banking sources
familiar with the deal said on Wednesday.
The sources did not name the banks involved and it was not
initially clear what amount Ivory Coast, the world's top cocoa
producer, was targeting for the deal. It last went to
international markets in February 2015 with a $1 billion bond
that matures in March 2028.
