Ivory Coast became independent: August 7th, 1960

August 7th is the Independence Day of the Republic of Ivory Coast.

Ivory Coast is a republic that is located in West Africa and faces the Atlantic Ocean on the south side.

It had been an autonomous state of the French Community since December 4th, 1958, but became independent on August 7, 1960.

Stable politics were carried out by the first president, Felix Houphouet-Boigny, and the subsequent development due to high economic growth was called the “miracle of Yvoire.”
