Other 43 billion for employment and agriculture

28 September 2010

The Government of Burundi  will invest an additional $ 43 million as part of the ambitious plan launched in order to restart the nation after a decade of civil war.

The last tranche of funding, secured by a loan from the World Bank, will go to projects for the reintegration into employment of women and men with lower levels of education.

Another important portion of the appropriation will be used to reform the coffee chain, the country's biggest agricultural production with a number of employees (including the linked industry) of approximately 800 thousand people, 10 percent of the national total.

Projects  will involve ten of the 17 provinces of Burundi.
