With the revolution the world is going through, business opportunities are appearing every day. These opportunities, available and accessible to all, are based on so-called growth sectors in each country. In Benin, there are also sectors that present good business opportunities.

Why invest in Benin?

Benin is a country with a peaceful socio-political climate. It is a country that defends good governance. Its geographical location plays an important role in the development of business opportunities for young people. Indeed, it is located in the West African zone and is close to Africa’s commercial giant, in this case, Nigeria (Add a link that gives more details on Nigeria). It has a tropical climate that helps reduce bad weather at work. Its autonomous port facilitates inter-territorial trade and contributes greatly to import-export commercial activities.

The development of ICTs helps to interconnect young people and initiate innovative projects. The availability of manpower is a major asset for business development. This is one of the opportunities that young people use to sometimes maintain a life balance. Other reasons why it is important to invest in Benin include the reduction of formalities and a solid legal arsenal.

Sectors generating business opportunities in Benin

In Benin, the opportunities take into account several sectors. These different sectors, known as promising sectors, are to be explored in order to build a significant personal and professional heritage on Beninese soil. Here are three promising opportunity sectors in Benin:

  • Tourism
  • Agri-food
  • Real estate

The first sector covers the tourist potential of Benin.  From the lakeside town of Ganvié to the open-air museum of Parakou via the historical museum of Abomey, the tourist heritage has many advantages.  Among these, it emerges the representation of this sector at 2.5/% of the GDP in 2008 (Source??? It is necessary to specify the sources of the statistics for more credibility). The various tourist sites attract thousands of tourists every year. Tourism is therefore a sector in which it is advisable to invest.

 

Agri-food represents a sector with many riches. Food crops are the mines of this sector. Pineapple, corn, tomatoes, mahogany nuts and many others are excellent products that can be easily marketed. Their processing on the spot remains a low developed experience in Benin. It is therefore a favorable market to start entrepreneurship. In fact, the production and processing of some food products is highly profitable.

As for real estate, it is a major sector in which we also recommend you to invest. Indeed, the need to build houses or to have a roof under which to dwell is a priority for the human species in general and Beninese men in particular. Moreover, infrastructures are essential for a country’s development.
