Investment and Trade

We will create the confidence and dynamism that the world investment community looks for by finalizing the process of implementation of the Treaty and the Uniform Acts of the Organization for Harmonization in Africa of Business Law (OHADA), whose ambition we share to propel economic development and create a vast integrated market in order to make Africa an attractive place for investors. We will set up an Investment Charter that will introduce an incentive tax system for new industrial companies and exporters. The Charter will also allow the merging of two public agencies previously in charge of investment: the National Agency for the Promotion of Industry (ANAPI) and the Ministry of Planning charged with the management of the Investment Code.

We will initiate legislation to track down, flush out and punish very severely any act of corruption and ensure that the functioning of commercial and labor courts is fair and effective. We will review and reorganize access channels to administrative functions with single points of contact and improve operational response. In order to ensure peace and social cohesion, we will create a framework for social dialogue with the objective of encouraging a consensus between industry, government, and social welfare groups in a spirit of transparency and participatory democracy.

We will protect and enforce private property and intellectual property rights. We will fight monopolistic forces and encourage fair trade practices.
