MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
The landlocked, West African country of Burkina Faso is a poor country bordered by Belize, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger and Togo. It has previously suffered from military coups and is always at danger from droughts. That said, it has huge gold reserves and the former French colony is one of the leading cotton producers in the region. Burkina Faso translates as “land of honest men” but has been troubled with external and domestic concern in relation to human rights and the economy. Covering 105,869 square miles with a population of around 17.4 million, it is a huge country with enchanting landscapes for tourists to enjoy and a substantial GDP annual growth that has increased demand for delivery services in Burkina Faso. Despite being just 2,698 miles from the UK, it is yet to have the infrastructure or big attractions to attract substantial numbers.
A large part of the population lives in the capital of Ouagadougou and it is significantly bigger than any other city. Bobo-DIoulasso is the only other substantial city but notable places are Koudougou, Ouahigouya, Banfoa, Dédougou, Kaya, Dori, Tenkodogo and Réo. Despite having an underdeveloped transportation network, cheap postage to Burkina Faso is available with road, air and rail connections to the country. There are around 8,000 miles of highways to connect the major cities, there are two international airports in the two major cities and the railway connects Burkina Faso with Ivory Coast. Postcodes are not used in the country.
