Burkina Faso: Customs revenue exceeds target in Q1 2024, reaching $427mln

(Ecofin Agency) - Despite security challenges, Burkina Faso's economy demonstrates resilience with promising outlooks. For the 2024 fiscal year, customs aims to collect $1.8 billion.

In Burkina Faso, customs collected CFA262.22 billion ($427 million) in revenue in the first quarter of 2024, according to the Burkina Information Agency (AIB). This collection represents a recovery rate of 100.38% compared to the initially projected CFA261.22 billion.

Despite the security challenges faced by the country, the economy has shown resilience. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the country's economic prospects remain favorable, partly due to reforms implemented during the Transition. This year, the country is expected to become the fourth-largest economy in the CFA zone, reaching $21.9 billion (at current prices) compared to the estimated $20.3 billion in 2023.

It is worth noting that Burkina Faso's General Directorate of Customs aims to collect CFA1,106.2 billion ($1.8 billion) in revenue for the 2024 fiscal year, representing a 10.62% increase from the previous year.
