The structure of the court comprises, as the first instance, département courts, local and regional courts, responsible for the increasing value of the dispute or the severity of the offense, as well as labor courts in accordance with the Labor Code and a higher regional court. At the top is the Supreme Court (Cour Sûpreme) in Ouagadougou, which is divided into the Court of Appeal (Cour de Cassation), the Council of State (Conseil d’État), the Court of Auditors (Cour des Comptes) and the Constitutional Council (Conseil Constitutionnel). In substantive law, written law, based on French colonial law in the state of independence in 1960, and traditional rights, in particular Islamic law of the Maliki school (Malikites), side by side. However, important areas of law have been newly codified. Commercial and business law is standardized within the French-speaking countries of Africa within the framework of the Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa (OHADA).
Burkina Faso is an agricultural country and belongs with a gross national income (GNI) per capita of (2017) US- $ 610 to the poorest countries in the world. Since the introduction of the structural adjustment program signed by the IMF and Burkina Faso in 1991, state capitalism has no longer been the main objective of economic policy, but liberalization and diversification. The greatest economic problems are the limited domestic market, periods of drought, sterile soils, the dependence of the export economy on world market prices, high transport costs and the low level of education and productivity. Due to its inland location and the numerous migrant workers, Burkina Faso is heavily dependent on the political and economic situation in the southern neighbor Ivory Coast. The national budget and a large part of the infrastructure investments are financed to a large extent by international aid.
Foreign trade: The foreign trade balance has been negative since the 1970s (import value in 2016: US $ 3.3 billion, export value: US $ 2.5 billion). The most important export products are gold and cotton, hides and skins, and the main imports are oil, food, machinery and vehicles. The main trading partners are the EU countries and Switzerland, the Republic of Ivory Coast and India.
Agriculture, in which over 90% of the population work, is still the economic basis of Burkina Faso. The agricultural sector still achieved 32.6% of the gross domestic product (GDP) in 2016. 44% of the total land area is used for agriculture. 90% of the cultivated area is used for self-sufficiency. With traditional extensive cultivation methods (mobile hoe construction with slash and burn) productivity is usually low. Fertile soils can only be found in the southwest and in some river valleys. The main crops are millet (sorghum), corn and rice.
In periods of drought, one’s own harvest is insufficient to feed the population. Rice and wheat, the staple foods in cities, are increasingly being imported. Export products are cotton, sesame, peanuts, shea nuts and tobacco. The export to livestock has decreased significantly. The main grazing area is the dry north-west, as the river valleys, which are contaminated by tsetse flies, cannot be used as pastures. Cattle breeding is mainly carried out by nomadic Fulbe.
Burkina Faso has a wide range of natural resources, which, however, have so far hardly been mined due to the lack of transport routes and high investment costs. The liberalized mining sector is increasingly attracting foreign investors. Gold mining at Poura was resumed in 1984, and mining of the rich manganese deposits at Tambao in the far north of the country began in 1993. Zinc, antimony and marble are also mined. Phosphate, silver, lead and limestone deposits have hardly been developed yet.
The development of industry and craft is hampered by the small size of the market, a lack of technical and financial resources and poor infrastructure. The industrial sector contributed 22.2% to GDP in 2016. The manufacturing industry is largely limited to the processing of domestic agricultural products. The production of food, textiles and shoes dominates; an export-oriented branch is the processing of cotton, hides and skins. The traditional handicrafts are highly developed. Most of the establishments are located in the convenient locations of Bobo-Dioulasso and Ouagadougou.
