Abidjan is correct. Ivory Coast has indeed the 3rd largest economy of Sub Saharan Africa although it only has 16 million inhabitants.
Abidjan is the commercial capital of Cote d'Ivoire and West Africa's second largest city after Lagos, Nigeria. Built on the shore of a calm lagoon (which is extremely polluted), the modern skyline of The Plateau — the business district — lies across the Charles de Gaulle Bridge.
Urbanized area: 4+ million (by 2015 it will have more than 6 million inhabitants if current population trends continue.)
