Burundi

Burundi Economic Outlook

  • Burundi’s growth accelerated to an estimated 4.6% in 2013, up from 4.2% in 2012, thanks to increased activity in the secondary and tertiary sectors.
  • Government finances improved, but the country is still faced with major constraints due to the poor mobilisation of domestic resources and the volatility of external aid; meanwhile, political tensions have grown in the run-up to 2015 elections.

Burundi et la BAD

Le Burundi se relève progressivement d’une crise socio-politique profonde, qui a détruit le tissu productif de son économie. L’économie reste encore fragile, du fait de sa forte dépendance au secteur primaire en termes de contribution au PIB (40 %). Le PIB par habitant s’élevait à 215 dollars EU en 2012, contre 286 dollars EU avant la crise de 1993.
