Burundi - Economic memorandum : current situation and institutional constraints : Burundi - Memorandum economique : situation et contralntes institutionnelles (French)

During the period 1977-79, the Government of Burundi has made a major effort to raise the country's investment. The effort was led and implemented by the public sector, with important repercussions on the country's pattern of domestic demand, on domestic inflation, and on the mobilization of domestic and external financial resources. Rising import prices and energy costs have contributed to raise domestic inflation as well as the demand for domestic banking credit. Financial constraints necessitate a reduction in the government's investment targets. Also, investments should be allocated to the directly productive sectors. Government policy is to establish regional development companies to promote integrated rural development, appropriate technology, commune-level organizations, and decentralization of government services. Improvement of the parastatal sector is needed to ensure their autonomy and flexibility, while retaining a monitoring function based on rewarding satisfactory economic and financial performance.
