The Permanent Secretariat of the Presidential Council for Investment (SP/CPI), in collaboration with the Statistics and Demography National Institute (INSD), is pleased to be able to make regularly available to you since 2012, reports on investment by modern enterprises in the secondary and tertiary sectors located in Burkina Faso and, to a lesser extent, those of enterprises in the primary sector.
Reports on investment by modern enterprises in the secondary and tertiary sectors located in Burkina Faso, are part of a dynamic of disaggregation of data according to branch of economic activity, type of fixed assets, the purpose of the investments and the origin of the investors. In addition, the reader will be able to consult the analysis of the balance of opinions of the sampled entrepreneurs on the factors that influence investments in Burkina Faso.
The capitalization of these various editions should lead to the establishment of the Investment Observatory, one of whose objectives is to make available, on a regular basis, statistical information on investments.
One of the difficulties facing the system remains the partial consideration of investments made in the primary sector, particularly those of modern farms. Indeed, given the importance of the primary sector in the national economy, its high growth potential and its strategic character, which makes it a pillar of the economic and social development of Burkina Faso, in particular with the creation of agro-sylvo-pastoral, fish and wildlife growth poles, particular attention must be paid to the monitoring of investments in this sector.
However, the measurement of investments in this sector requires a special approach which should be based on the information system of the structures responsible for agricultural statistics (DGPER and DGESS of the MAAH, and those of the MARA).
Collaboration between INSD and these structures is expected to fill this gap in future reporting. We would like to thank all the structures and companies that have contributed and supported the various reports on the investments of modern enterprises in the secondary and tertiary sectors located in Burkina Faso, and wish that this collaboration continue in the years to come.
To the readers, we wish them a good use of the report, hoping that it meets their expectations.
