Burkina Faso wants to create a great interest in the consumption of local products.
The initiative aims to boost the national economy through local consumption; a promising sector that is a sustainable alternative in the fight against unemployment and poverty in rural and urban areas. the problem however is the lack of raw materials.
A visitor to the country Adama Zagre said: “I asked the price and I was told that it varies 15,000 F or more. So I think it’s not within everyone’s reach. Now that the State is subsidizing or granting them certain favors, it will be within the reach of all. “
According to the 2017 trade balance, exports of value-added products rose from just over $ 2 million in 2012 to nearly $ 3 million in 2016, an increase of 0.31%.
