Fiscal decentralization is important so that local authorities can benefit from these resources
This, she said, will ensure a posture of local dynamization, structural transformation of the economy through industrial transformation to promote decent jobs, create conditions for improving the lives of youth, women, and all economic actors.
As for the partners, they stressed the importance of fiscal decentralization so that local authorities can benefit from these resources. Also, examining the deteriorated security context in Burkina Faso, they hoped that the implementation of the PNDES II would be rapid in order to face the security challenge. Finally, the representative of the European Union, Wolfram Vetter, expressed the commitment of his institution to accompany and support the government of Burkina Faso in the mobilization of funds.
The overall objective of the PNDES II for the period 2021- 2025 aims to “restore security and peace, strengthen the nation’s resilience and deeply transform the Burkinabe economy to generate strong, inclusive and sustainable growth.”
As a reminder, the Burkinabe state will contribute 63% of its own resources to the total cost of the PNDES, which is $33.4 million (19,030.70 billion CFA francs). The mobilization of external resources will be 28% of the total cost of the PNDES II, or $8.8 billion (5 trillion CFA francs). To collect this sum, the government has deemed it useful to organize a round table with the various parties in Brussels, Belgium, in December.
