Overview About International Trade in Burundi

Economic Overview

According to the IMF, Burundi's growth reached 4% per year between 2006 and 2008 and the macro-economic prospects for 2009 are rather positive, with the GDP expected to settle at 4.8%. Economic growth is driven by coffee and tea exports. Burundi's geographical location makes the country a trade hub of the sub-region, despite the fact that this has not been utilized to the fullest.

 

The country is coming out of a decade of civil war, which has displaced people as well as made them refugees, and caused many deaths. Despite a certain amount of political stability, the weakness of the judiciary and the administrative system, the corruption, State interference in economic activities, security problems and dependence on foreign aid are definite obstacles that have to be overcome.

Burundi is a very poor country where health and social conditions are poor: only one child out of two goes to school, one adult out of 15 is HIV positive, food, medical and electricity supplies are insufficient and 68% of the population lives under the threshold of poverty.
