A Turkish delegation visits GDIZ

On January 15, 2024, the ‘Chambre de Commerce et d’Industrie du Bénin (CCI Benin)’ organised the Turkey-Benin economic, trade, and investment forum.

This served as a platform for discussion between Turkish and Beninese investors, aiming to strengthen economic and trade ties between the two countries. The forum was also an opportunity for Turkish participants to discover the numerous investment opportunities in Benin.

On January 16, 2024, the Turkish delegation attending the forum visited Glo-Djigbé Industrial Zone (GDIZ), a key destination for investors looking to establish a presence in Africa. Impressed by the modern infrastructure and state-of-the-art logistics facilities offered by GDIZ, the visitors acknowledged Benin’s dynamism and vision for economic and industrial development.
