GLOBAL Technologies at PNDES Development Partners Conference

GLOBAL Technologies visited PNDES Development Partners Conference held in Paris on December 7-8.

The PNDES is a key component of the Burkina Faso economy structural transformation. 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 aim of the Paris Conference was to federate Burkina Faso partners, both public and private investors, around the funding of the National Plan for Economic and Social Development – PNDES. This five-year plan embodies the ambitions of the Burkina Faso people for the 2016 to 2020 period.
