The Government of Burundi is renting most of its offices. Huge amount of money is spent on rents, around 12 billion each year. The Government is determined to build its own buildings with its annual investment budget.
Part of that investment budget will contribute to finance other infrastructures such as hydroelectric dams, hospitals and above all transforming Gitega city into the country’s political capital (headquarters for the parliament, ministries and housing for civil servants).
Leasing construction equipment and machinery provides investment opportunities. Each year, the authority in charge of the market for public infrastructure launches a lot of projects to be carried out through calls for tenders (Refer to The National Directorate of Public Procurement).
