Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world. After decades of devastating civil war, Burundi still experiences regular outbursts of violence which hamper the country's growth. The country has virtually no service or manufacture industry and over 90 percent of population rely on agriculture. As such, Burundi's economy is highly dependent on foreign aid which accounts for over 50 percent of government budget. In recent years, international organisations have been working with the government to address bureaucracy, widespread corruption, lack of security and basic infrastructure, poor education and healthcare system. As a result, Burundi has been able to attract foreign direct investments to its coffee and tea industries which are expected to drive the growth.

GDP Annual Growth Rate | Notes
The annual growth rate in Gross Domestic Product measures the increase in value of the goods and services produced by an economy over the period of a year. Therefore, unlike the commonly used quarterly GDP growth rate the annual GDP growth rate takes into account a full year of economic activity, thus avoiding the need to make any type of seasonal adjustment.
