Towards prompt achievement of Vision 2040

Certainly, good governance boosts a country’s economy. Burundi is a model of decentralization in the concert of nations. But the economy was not growing at the expected pace, the Speaker of the National Assembly expressed his surprise on Saturday, June 03, 2023 at the end of community development work that he carried out on the RN1 in the locality of Gahahe, in the commune and province of Kayanza.

The Right Honorable Gelase Daniel Ndabirabe also pointed out that two visions are of great importance to His Excellency the President of the Republic: Vision 2040, which places Burundi in the category of emerging countries, and Vision 2060, which places Burundi among the developed countries.

Even the second edition of Burundi’s National Development Forum confirmed those projections.

Fortunately, the error has just been discovered. This small point that was missing from the implementation of this great edifice which is Vision 2040, even though it was well drawn up, is nothing other than the fact that the grassroots people are not enjoying the profits of the decentralization.

Now it’s a done deal, announced the Speaker of the National Assembly, who used the State’s annual general budget for the 2023-2024 fiscal year as evidence.

He explained that the budget allocated to projects of the various ministries will directly benefit the people, since these projects will be carried out at the grassroots level.

But if we are not careful, the education of young people, which is in decline, will undermine Vision 2040. The phenomenon of globalization is often held responsible for this acculturation, but the Right Honorable Gelase Daniel Ndabirabe reminds us that there a two sides to every coin. It is up to parents to make the most of this development. For this purpose, the Speaker of the National Assembly, who recalled the good old-fashioned approach whereby every child belonged to the Burundian nation, proposed that parents’ committees be set up at different levels of the community. The village committee will be responsible for pupils in basic schools, while the zonal committee will keep a close eye on those in high schools, and the communal committee will be responsible for university students. All these committees will work closely together.
