TEN (10) GOOD REASONS TO INVEST IN BURKINA

  1. Political and institutional stability based on an ongoing quest for social dialogue and political consensus;
  2. A stable and sustainable macroeconomic environment;
  3. A resolute choice for a liberal economy open to the outside world;
  4. A favourable, innovative and particularly incentive legislative and regulatory framework, with a firm policy of protection, guarantee and promotion of investments;
  5. A zone of monetary stability, with a common currency within the WAEMU, freely convertible with a fixed parity against the euro;
  6. A young, dynamic, enterprising population and an abundant and reputed labour force;
  7. A central geographical position in the heart of West Africa, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU). A common border with six ECOWAS States and five WAEMU States, giving access to a potential market of 120 million inhabitants in the WAEMU area and more than 350 million in the ECOWAS area;
  8. A promising legal and judicial environment, a harmonised and constantly improving business law within the framework of the Organisation for the Harmonisation of Business Law in Africa (OHADA);
  9. An international road network of good quality, coupled with an efficient international transit system, making Burkina a crossroads for the exchanges of the countries of UEMOA and ECOWAS;
  10. Enormous and still unexploited economic potential in the fields of agriculture, agro-industry, mining, industry, tourism and services.
