Enhancing Relations Between Burkina Faso and India

His Excellency Mr. Blaise Compaore, President of Burkina Faso is working on new ways of harnessing new technologies for agricultural development. The newly adopted Strategy for Accelerated Growth and Sustainable Development (SCADD) sets an ambitious goal of modernizing the Agriculture Sector of the country.

A delegation led by H.E. Mr. Idriss Raoua Ouedraogo, Ambassador, Embassy of Burkina Faso to India, recently visited India. It included a technical team from Fonds de l’Eau et de l’Equipment Rural (FEER), Burkina Faso, led by Mr. Concourou Coulibaly. The delegation visited the M&M Unit in Mumbai and met with Mr. Sanjay Jadhav, Sr. GM, Exports - Africa & Middle East and others in the M&M team, to take delivery of the first batch of over 100 tractors and some agricultural equipment that had been ordered by the Government of Burkina Faso.

“I am very honoured to receive the first batch of tractors from Mahindra & Mahindra. I think my visit to Mumbai was very fruitful,” said H.E. Mr. Idriss Raoua Ouedraogo. “Today, India is playing a great role in Africa and is setting an example for us. Indian products are very suitable for our country as the technology is more appropriate. “ As Mr. Sanjay Jadhav says, “We were very pleased to receive H.E. Mr. Idriss Raoua Ouedraogo and the officials from FEER. We are confidant about the quality that we deliver. His Excellency has expressed his wish for having long-term cooperation with us. As an organization, Mahindra & Mahindra will always support Burkina Faso.”
