Burkina Faso is planning to spend 57.507 billion CFA francs (93.74 million U.S. dollars) in 2017 on better social services in cities.

Economy and Finance Minister Hadizatou Rosine Sori-Coulibaly said Friday in a release that the move is to help municipalities “provide better basic social services.”

“The endowment is a precedent and demonstrates the government’s goodwill to ensure full support to municipalities in carrying out their tasks,” the release said.

It added that the Burkina Faso government has set up a national economic and social development plan aiming to transfer 15 percent of state budget to municipalities by 2020. Enditem
