In Burkina Faso, commercial matters are coordinated by the Economic Section (U.S. Department of State) in partnership with the regional commercial office in Johannesburg, South Africa.  The U.S. Embassy also offers a range of services to help U.S. companies do business in Burkina Faso.

The main goal of commercial services in Burkina Faso is to promote trade and investment by:

  • Supporting U.S. businesses and investors in Burkina Faso
  • Improving the investment and business climate
  • Promoting U.S. products and services
  • Encouraging greater use of African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA)

Our Country Commercial Guide provides a more detailed description of how to do business in Burkina Faso and can be accessed through the Department of Commerce’s Market Research Library.
