The PNDES is a key component of the structural transformation of the Burkina Faso economy. Such transformation requires strong policies from the state and a very active role of the private sector in increasing productive investment in high-potential and innovative sectors, as well as in improving the quality of human capital.
The state, the private sector, and civil society, in their respective roles, must act in a complementary manner, rather than substituting one another. The state will help the market work better by creating the necessary institutions, which will help increase investor confidence and reduce transaction costs. This will take place through the implementation of coherent and effective sector policies with efficient modes of governance and attention to issues of equity and accountability for all development actors.
