About this Report

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Fishing Road as a driver for the national economy

The government is investing heavily in tourism-related projects, most notably the Fishing Road public private partnership project, which has been budgeted at CFAF131 billion, but is expected to generate revenue of CFAF191 billion. The goal is to develop a 32km stretch along the Atlantic coastline to attract tourists, which will include the construction of 2,000 new hotel rooms by 2018, including 4- and 5-star resort hotels, a marine village, cultural villages, golf courses, a wildlife park and plotted villa development. The beaches of Fidjrossè, Togbin-Adounko, Avlékété and Djègbadji have been identified as the locations for four tourism development centres, with the project alone expected to create 9,000 jobs.

Infrastructure is the top priority for the government

The government of Benin is focusing on the development of the country’s infrastructure, following an investment of approximately CFAF327 billion in the road infrastructure in 2013, representing 20% of its national budget. The country is planning to invest more than CFAF134 on several road infrastructure projects in 2014, covering 234km. Furthermore, construction of two airports began in 2013: Tourou Airport in Parakou and Glo-Djigbé Airport in Jolome. Sea connections are also being developed through the improvement of the facilities of ports in Cotonou. These projects will significantly boost the travel and tourism industry within Benin.

Travel accommodation development hampered by low occupancy rates

Despite the investment into the introduction of new hotels in Benin, there is competition between those already looking to attract incoming tourists, with Benin Marina Hotel, Novotel and Azalai Hotel de la Plage all finding it difficult to maintain sufficient occupancy levels. Due to the cost of flight tickets and car rental, European tourists try to look for less expensive solutions when it comes to travel accommodation.

Ecotourism and cultural tourism are key attractions for tourists

Benin has increasingly embraced ecotourism and organisations such as Benin Ecotourism Concern (Eco-Benin) created in 1999 with the objective of ensuring better living standards for the communities at local and national level through ecotourism and eco-development promotion as a sustainable management of natural resources, keep working throughout the country by developing and implanting innovative approaches, including opportunities for local employment, garden production and fish cultivation. The most promising areas for ecotourism development are in the wildlife reserves of Pendjari and W national parks, which are located in northern Benin.

Legislation in favour of the importing of over 3-year-old cars contributes to the development of car rental

Despite projects to ban the importation of over 3-year-old cars in some countries in the region, the government in Benin is actually allowing car rental companies to import more cars, which is contributing to the growth of the category. Moreover, car rental firms are now investing in better vehicles and developing the levels of service offered to clients. More players are offering online services, but the evolution of the internet within Benin is still not sufficient to significantly boost the category.
