President Patrice Talon confirms the Glo Djigb√© Airport project
Benin's president, Patrice Talon travelled to China for a few days. After the second edition of the ''Forum Invest in Africa'', he made a few strategic meetings to forge partnerships with potential investors. He also met AVIC group executives in the city of Shenzhen to discuss about the airport project. President Talon confirmed on its official account, the progress of discussions with the group that presumably will be responsible for constructing the said airport.
As a reminder, the announcement of construction of this airport was made many years back ago. This will be particularly more suitable for new aircraft standards and sensibly increase air traffic to Benin. With this airport, Benin will have a total of three airports with Cadj√®houn and Tourou.
In addition to the meeting with the executives of AVIC, the President also met the Shanghai city authorities in order to establish partnerships.
