Possibility of adjusting the size of the field.
Easy realization of a rail connection from the new station Anyama.
Direct access to the new road Agboville along the ground to the west.
Relative remoteness from urban areas Anyama, which are thus sheltered from the prevailing winds.
Proximity to a medium-voltage line.
Possibility of creating an area of ​​200 ha of pasture.
Presence of a water supply.
The future slaughterhouse Abidjan is actually a complex Slaughterhouse - cattle market, which must meet in all respects with health standards.

Industrial facilities Slaughterhouse itself occupy about 10 ha of the 50 ha to be developed.
