The Burundi is a republic multi-party to presidential regime or the President occupies the loads of head of State and head of government. The executive power is in the hands of the government, while the two chambers of the Parliament (Senate and National Assembly) share the legislative power with the government

The economy of Burundi is primarily rural and based on agriculture and animal husbandry. Agricultural production is divided between the products intended for export, such as coffee, tea and cotton and food crops.
