Inflation reached 24.5 per cent in 2008 as a result of sharp rises in international food and oil prices. Between April 2007 and April 2008, domestic prices for fuel rose by 50 per cent. The inflation rate should fall to 13.1 per cent in 2009 and then continue to drop to reach 3.7 per cent by 2010.

Agriculture is still the mainstay of the Burundian economy. Its contribution to GDP in 2007 was 48 per cent. It is a source of income and employment for around 80 per cent of the population. Due to a lack of irrigation and water-storage systems, the agricultural sector suffers from low productivity and remains subject to the whims of the climate. Burundi has also suffered quite heavily from the recent increase in world food prices. As far as food is concerned, it is structurally in deficit. Poor rainfall suggests that there will be another drought in the future. With the support of the international community, the authorities are putting in place projects to develop rural infrastructure, to diversify agricultural production and to improve yields through research and by using small-scale irrigation systems.

According to the government, during this post-conflict period, a return to growth will rely on three factors: i) continually removing main economic distortions in order to increase total-factor productivity, particularly in the coffee sector; ii) substantially increasing investment, which would be driven by international aid and consist mainly in infrastructure redevelopment, in order to reduce the main bottlenecks; and iii) ensuring further improvements in trade deregulation, by taking further steps towards inclusion in the East African Community (EAC), which will contribute to economic diversification, stimulate competition and attract more investment.

How's the business in Burundi?

Political in Burundi

Politic in Burundi

PA transitional government was established following the signature of the Arusha Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation in Burundi on 28 August 2000. A series of institutional reforms were also introduced. Above all, these included elections, reforming public administration, tackling corruption, reforming the legal sector, the defence and the security corps. After the 2005 elections, these reforms made up the legislature's political manifesto. On the eve of municipal, legislative and presidential elections scheduled for 2010, these reforms are far from complete.

The aim of these prospective institutional reforms was to get Burundi out of a cycle of violence and to rebuild the country. It was understood that this could only be achieved if the process was legitimised by democratic elections. The last municipal and legislative elections took place in 2005 and ended in victory for the National Coalition for the Defence of Democracy-Democratic Defence Forces party. The elections were deemed to be transparent by all parties involved and by independent observers. There was a climate of relative peace throughout the whole country apart from some parts of the west, where attacks were still being carried out by an armed movement known as the Party for the Liberation of the Hutu People-National Liberation Front.

A decentralisation policy has been put in place, in line with the stipulations of the Arusha Agreement and the post-transition constitution. In the absence of an overall legal framework, this is articulated by municipal law and in a policy paper. Municipalities are legally and financially independent. However, the way they are divided up has more to do with keeping political paymasters happy and less to do with using resources rationally. The decentralisation policy has thus fallen victim to procrastination and to strategic political calculations about territorial occupation, blocking decentralisation laws and the support fund. As long as there is no real decentralisation and no significant source of material and financial resources (a support fund for decentralisation is being looked into), most of the country's municipalities will continue to face challenges and will not even be able to pay their staff.

Another major reform within the administrative sector looks at how to manage central government. As a result, a general government inspectorate, a national audit office, and an anti-corruption court and task force have been created to fight corruption, economic and financial malpractice. An anti-corruption law has also been passed.

However, there were election on 26 July 2010 with only one candidate. That was President Pierre Nkurunziza who won election with more than 91 percent. It seems the reform it didn't work well because during the election at least eight people have been killed and more than 50 people wounded in almost 60 explosions since June, raising fears of a return to violence seen during the country's recent civil war

What do you think about election that was held with one candidate only?

With violance that for sure President Pierre Nkurunziza wouldn't let go the power
Jean Lemont , Burindi

If you've only one candidate to vote there isn't point to vote because we know who's the winner.
