Burkina Faso terminates the Communication Infrastructure Strengthening Support Project

(Ecofin Agency) - Meeting in the September 11 Council of Ministers, the Burkinabe government adopted a decree terminating the Communication Infrastructure Strengthening Support Project (PARICOM).
Authorities said since the program was launched in 2014, it is still lagging and no steering committee or management bodies have been set up. Also, in 2017, PARICOM was replaced by the BKF/021 project co-funded by the Luxembourg and Burkinabe governments.
Conducted by Burkina Faso’s ICT agency (Agence nationale de promotion des technologies de l'information et de la communication -ANPTIC), this new project is expected to improve the availability, efficiency, and accessibility of e-communication services across the country. It aims to improve the quality, reliability, and accessibility of communications infrastructure, contributing to the objectives of the National Economic and Social Development Plan (PNDES) 2016-2020.
BKF/021 is valued at €28.49 million, of which €22.3 million was provided by Luxembourg and the remaining by Burkina Faso. It is scheduled to end in June next year.
