Maroc Telecom wins operating licence in Ivory Coast

ABIDJAN, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Maroc Telecom has won a telecoms licence in Ivory Coast and has paid a first instalment of 50 billion CFA francs ($82.54 million), Ivory Coast's presidency said without announcing the total fee.

The announcement made late on Monday followed a meeting between Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara and the Moroccan company's Chairman and CEO Abdeslam Ahizoune in the West African nation's commercial capital Abidjan.
