We were able to present the industrialization policy of the Government of Benin and the GDIZ project to our guests, who then visited our cashew processing plant and our Garment Training Centres. This visit enabled the President of Niger to discover the mechanisms that have favoured the development of the Zone and to note the rapid execution of the works. At the end of the visit, the Nigerien President left impressed by the scale of Glo-Djigbé Industrial Zone!
