Cotonou, Benin – Today, a Road Governance Caravan, co-organized by USAID and the Borderless Alliance, made the final stop of its journey along the main north-south commercial corridor in Benin. The aim of the Caravan was to identify transport costs and delays along the route so measures can be taken to reduce them, and ultimately to increase the flow of trade. Cotonou was the fourth of five stops the Caravan made in major towns along the corridor from June 23–30. 

“By gathering importers, exporters, traders, and government agencies together to discuss Beninese transport and trade costs, this Caravan creates the forum in which both the public and private sectors may discuss and assess the transport costs that limit Benin’s ability to trade,” said U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission, Todd Whatley.
“The Cotonou-Malanville corridor serves as a conduit for wider interests in West Africa, facilitating trade not only within Benin, but also from its neighbors, particularly those who rely on the Port of Cotonou.”
