The IMF Country Reports Series covers economic and financial developments and trends in member countries. Each report, prepared by a staff team after discussions with officials of the country, is published at the option of the member.
This report assesses the Observance of Standards and Codes on Fiscal Transparency Module for Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso has made progress in recent years in increasing the level of fiscal transparency: the legislative basis has been strengthened; a medium-term expenditure framework has been implemented; an integrated financial management and information system is largely in place; and the preparation of program budgets will allow the budget to focus increasingly on government objectives. However, there are a number of areas where improvements are needed.
