National Economic Development Plan (PNDES)
Foundation and Vision
The PNDES is part of a dynamic of structural transformation of the Burkinabe economy. Such an option will imply proactive government policies and a very active role of the private sector in increasing productive investment in promising and innovative sectors, as well as in improving the quality of human capital.
In their respective roles, the state, the private sector and civil society will have to function as complementary actors, rather than substitutes. The state will have to help the market to work well by creating the institutions for it, which has the advantage of putting investors in confidence and lowering transaction costs. This will result in the implementation of coherent, effective sectoral policies and an effective mode of governance, ensuring respect for the equity and accountability of all development actors.
