With its audacious programme of economic reforms, a growing economy and a GDP growth rate forecasted at 4.5% for 2016, Burundi’s business environment is continuously improving.

In 2009 l’Agence burundaise pour la promotion des investissements (API) – Burundi’s Investment Promotion Agency – was launched, as the national body responsible for development, export and investment promotion.

As a result of the efforts deployed by its Government, in 2012, Burundi jumped 12 positions in the Doing Business ranking and was classified among the 10 top reformers in the world and the 4th in Africa.

We are committed to helping both large and small businesses expand their businesses and create economic prosperity in Burundi.
