Burkina Faso

    The International Monetary Fund projects that Burkina Faso’s real gross domestic product will reach 5.2 percent this year, up from 3.2 percent in 2009. The growth is driven by the agricultural and mining sectors. The fund estimates the African nation’s real GDP in 2011 to reach 5.5 percent. An IMF mission visited Burkina Faso Sept. 16-30.
