Due in part to 40 years of cyclical violence, economic growth in Burundi has remained well below the sub-Saharan Africa average, and Burundi is now the third poorest country in the world. The status quo is unacceptable, and it is essential that the Government drive the changes needed to achieve sustainable growth. This chapter provides an overview of past and current macroeconomic trends and describes how the poverty profile could influence policy reforms.
