Where is telephone country code 225?

Country code +225 (dialed as 00 225 from many places) is Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) in western Africa.

Landline numbers begin with +225 2 or +225 3

Mobile numbers begin with +225 0, +225 4, +225 5, or +225 6

(Note that, in the case of mobile numbers beginning with +225 0, you do not drop the leading 0 from the domestic number when calling from other countries.)

(The plus sign means "insert your international access prefix here." From a GSM mobile phone, you can enter the number in full international format, starting with the plus sign. The most common prefix is 00, but North America (USA, Canada, etc.) uses 011, Japan uses 010, Australia uses 0011, and many other countries use different prefixes.)

Geography has nothing to do with poverty. All around the world you can see many cases of two or more countries sharing the same geographical spot and showing completely diffcerent economies.

Ivory Coast

What is the Ivory Coast's biggest problem facing the nation?

That's probably their debt to foreign countries.

I personally happen to believe that the biggest challenge for Ivory Coast are the volatile commodity prices. The country is an agriculture super-power and any sudden drop in prices of Cocoa or Palm Oil may trigger a wave of protests.

Since the World (see Jim Rogers and Marc Faber on commodities super-cycle..) is in dire need of agriculture products, I believe this will be a great decade for IC. However, if the country will not succeed in diversifying the economy and the money from the exports are not spent on the long-term capital projects and into potential future drives of economic growth, the country will find itself on a brink of civil war again (and this I happen to believe will happen).

Who is the President of the Ivory Coast?

Alassane Dramane Ouattara is the current President of the Ivory Coast.

Former Prime Minister of the Ivory Coast from 1990 November 7 to 1993 December 9, Ouattra was Prime Minister of the Ivory Coast under president Félix Houphouët-Boigny, until the president died of prostate cancer. There was a struggle with Ouattra and Henri Konan Bédié for power, but eventually Bédié won, and Ouattra returned to working for the IMF.

Ouattra attempted to run for president in 1998, but had his nationality papers revoked by the courts. Not until shortly after the 1999 coup d'état, did Ouattra return to the country, supporting the revolution. However, he was barred from the 2000 presidential election by a law which stated that both of the candidates' parents must be from the Ivory Coast. This was a major factor in the 2002 civil war.

Not until 2007 was Ouattra told by Gbagbo he could run for president. The election had already been delayed from 2005 due to the civil war, and was further delayed to 2010. Finally on 2010 October 31, the presidential election was held. Ouattra was initially deemed to be the winner, but the Constitutional Council later invalidated half a million votes, declaring Gbagbo the winner. This led to a lesser civil war, which eventually ended up with Gbagbo's arrest on 2011 April 11. Ouattra was finally sworn in as president on 2011 May 6, 6 months after his election.
