Bussines in Burkina Faso
In 2009, the economy was still feeling the effects of the cotton, energy and food crises of the preceding years, and the torrential rains of
September 2009 made matters worse. The economy nonetheless recorded positive growth, although the growth rate slowed from 5.2% in 2008 to 3%.
This growth was driven by services (which contributed 1.3 percentage points to real GDP growth) and, to a lesser extent, by the primary and
secondary sectors (0.9 and 0.7 percentage points respectively).
The economy is dominated by the primary sector and services. The primary sector (agriculture, livestock, forestry and fisheries) accounts for
no less than 34.5% of GDP. It is followed by trade, transport and communications (17.1%). Manufacturing is not highly developed (12% of GDP),
while the mining sector, although it has grown very strongly in the last two years, still accounts for only a small share of GDP (2.8%).
