Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, Burkina Faso President

Burkina Faso hosted the first Pan-African meeting designed to strength democratic governance and business climate in Africa, held on January 16 -17 under the theme, Governance, Democracy and Business.

The World Movement for Democracy, the Center for International Private Enterprise and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Africa Business Center (ABC) have jointly launched, in partnership with the Burkina Faso Government, an initiative aimed at engaging the private sector in democratic governance throughout Africa by initiating a dialogue between business, civil society and policy makers.

During the inaugural session, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, Burkina Faso President questioned the audience about the key issues of the conference and how to create a dynamic interaction between public authorities, the private sector, civil society and social partners, which are different but complementary players, in order to establish good governance as the basis of sustainable economic and social development, for the benefit of all.

“How can companies be equipped so that they may, in turn, be able to support democracy and governance?” asked Kaboré.

The Burkinabe Head of State then expressed his wish to commend the initiators perspicacity and merit in designing the meeting.

“We believe that a clear and harmonious synergy between these stakeholders will contribute to increasing the opportunities for citizen participation in the management of the public space, and expand the ranges of economic freedom.”
