Burkina Faso to improve business and land registration
August 23, 2012
The Government of Burkina Faso is set to further improve business conditions in the country by enhancing services to all stakeholders involved in business, land and construction license registration in the cities of Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso.
Working with ICF over the next 24 months, Burkina Faso will develop and introduce an integrated registration system that will interconnect all agencies involved in land, business and construction registration. This system will provide a single point of entry for lodging transaction documents and will allow submission, receipts, processing and approval of registration permits.
This project builds on previous work done with ICF to improve registration services in the country. This involved the establishment of One Stop Shops for land and business registration and at the same time reduced the number of procedures needed for registration. As a result, the numbers of registration have increased and businesses have been able to register much more quickly. The new interconnection project will deliver further improvements in transaction numbers and reductions in costs, procedures and time.
