Benin - Country economic memorandum (Vol. 3) : le secteur des entreprises publiques (Francês)

Major changes in Benin's economic policies and performance have occurred over the past five years. Implementation of the First Plan has had mixed results, and the rapidly-increased external debt has led to a difficult public finance situation at present. In view of this, the government has taken positive steps to eliminate economic distortions and improve the management of public finance, which should lay the basis for more vigorous growth in the longer term. The issues currently confronting the government include: (i) focusing on economic activities that enjoy a strong demand and comparative cost advantages; (ii) rehabilitation and strengthening of public enterprises; (iii) resolution of problems associated with the three major projects - petroleum, sugar, and cement; (iv) reevaluation of the public finance situation; (v) preparation of sound productive sector projects to generate domestic resources; and (vi) further efforts to develop a comprehensive yet practical planning system. Significant structural adjustment is warranted.
