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.

Burundi Economic Outlook

Economic growth remains severely affected by the acute political crisis that has gripped the country since 2015; real per capita GDP declined 1.6% in 2016. A succession of adverse events, including suspension of financial aid by major donors, shortage of foreign exchange reserves, imports price inflation, and declining investment, seriously weakened the country’s economy, which contracted an estimated 1.3% in 2017. The economy, which depends heavily on agriculture, is expected to remain in recession until 2018 (0.3% decline in real GDP) before growing slightly in 2019 (1%).
