History

The Presidential Council for Investment

HISTORY OF THE PCI

Since the early 1990s, the Government of Burkina Faso has been pursuing a dynamic policy of reform, in the direction of economic liberalization and the promotion of the private sector as a driver of the country’s development.

Notable successes have been achieved in terms of facilitating the State/private sector dialogue and improving the business environment.

These efforts are monitored, appreciated and encouraged by national and international development actors and are reflected in the World Bank’s successive “Doing Business Better” reports.

Reform efforts are continuing and are seeing the implementation of increasingly refined measures. This is how the government created by Decree No. 2007-739/ PRES, the Presidential Council for Investment (PCI) advisory body, whose mission is to give its reflections and recommendations, an impetus for the development and implementation of the most appropriate policies to stimulate investment and economic growth.
