Country Highlights

Burundi’s Manufacturing Advancement Catalyzing Growth

The manufacturing sector in Burundi currently contributes approximately 10% of the GDP, with a focus on food processing, textiles, and cement production. This sector employs nearly 40,000 citizens, with fewer than 50 large enterprises formally registered. To enhance the sector’s influence over the next decade and propel the country towards middle-income status by 2040, interventions targeting scale output, access enhancement, and sector formalization are essential.

With preferential access to regional markets and a significant youth workforce available, there is a substantial scope for advancement in manufacturing. Initiatives focusing on inputs self-sufficiency, cluster development to foster entrepreneurship, and technology adoption to improve quality, productivity, and global competitiveness are crucial. Partnerships encouraging the transfer of manufacturing excellence from Asia should be prioritized to maximize the sector’s potential as a poverty alleviation tool and improve grassroots welfare in the long term.

The World Bank’s Country Economic Memorandum report highlights Burundi’s potential for growth in agriculture and trade sectors through reforms that boost productivity and private sector activity. The report emphasizes the importance of enhancing trade, increasing productivity in agriculture, and creating conditions for inclusive private sector-driven growth. By implementing appropriate policy reforms in finance, trade, and agriculture, Burundi aims to attract more private sector investments to create jobs and improve livelihoods across the country.

Efforts by organizations like the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) focus on revitalizing Burundi’s economy through sustainable agricultural practices. Despite challenges such as political instability and poverty, Burundi has shown improvements in GDP growth rates since 2006. The country has the potential to be self-sufficient in food production but faces threats to food and nutrition security. Initiatives aimed at improving agricultural research, extension services, rural credit access, and quality of agricultural products are crucial for sustainable development.

In conclusion, by prioritizing manufacturing sector reforms, enhancing trade opportunities, promoting sustainable agricultural practices, and fostering entrepreneurship through technology adoption, Burundi can unlock its economic potential and improve the well-being of its citizens over the long term. Collaborative efforts between government entities, international organizations, and local stakeholders are essential for driving economic growth and sustainable development in the country.
