June 06, 2011

June 6 (Bloomberg) -- Burundi’s economy will probably expand about 4.2 percent this year after growing 3.9 percent in 2010, the International Monetary Fund said.

Inflation is expected to accelerate this year and the government needs new policies to deal with rising food and fuel costs, the IMF said.
