As a major player in the pharmaceutical sector, Lyon is positioned as a hub of industry, research and innovation, offering a unique opportunity to promote collaborations between Beninese and Lyon-based companies.

“Lyon shares with Benin a deeply rooted history in textiles. For centuries, Lyon was the home of French silk, and although the use of silk has evolved over time, our lands continue to be a leading area of excellence for textile manufacturing and trade in Benin. This collaboration between Benin and Lyon will undoubtedly help to further stimulate the textile industry in Benin. Today, we have the opportunity to bring together these heritages and merge our skills to create a new synergy,”said Mr Jean Mougin, Member of the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Regional Council.
