GITEGA May 11th (ABP) – At the end of a government retreat, Burundi Head of State Pierre Nkurunziza granted a score of 83.65% to government action. The retreat was organized in Gitega, the political capital of the country, from May 8 to 9, 2019, according to the spokesman of the Burundi government, Mr. Prosper Ntahorwamiye, in an interview he gave to the press at the end of the retreat.
He indicated that the activities of the government retreat took place in two stages. As a first step (on May 8), he said, the retreat was attended by the members of the government and the State high-level officials to review the status of implementation of the recommendations that had been made for them during the government retreat held from December 19 to 20, 2018.
For methodological reasons, he explained, the ministries of the political field worked in commission around the first Deputy President of the republic and the ministries of the socio-economic field did the same around the second Deputy President of the Republic.
At the end of the works, Mr. Ntahorwamiye continued to say, the two Deputy Presidents made, as far as they were concerned, the restitution of the implementation of the aforementioned recommendations to the Head of State who, in turn, provided pieces of advice and guidance for improving production for the country’s development.
Second, Mr. Ntahorwamiye said that the retreat was attended by exclusive members of the government under the chairmanship of the Head of State, stating that the goal was to give the opportunity to each minister to present the commitments or activities that will be evaluated at the next government retreat.
