The project to build secondary markets in Benin’s showcase city is on the right track. The Minister in charge of the living environment and sustainable development, Didier Josée Tonato, gave an assurance of this during the launch of the annual work plan.
Cotonou will soon host several modern secondary markets. This project, supported by the government of President Patrice Talon, has entered its active phase. At least that is the assurance given on Tuesday, 12 November 2019 by Josée Didier Tonato, Minister of the Living Environment and Sustainable Development, at the opening of the yearly work plan review for September 2019 in his department.
In his opening speech, Minister José Tonato mentioned the project to build secondary markets in the country’s major cities and especially in Cotonou, the showcase city. As it seems, on the nine contracts planned for the economic capital of Benin, the tender notice is awarded and contracted. According to him, the construction of these markets are no longer just paper projects but are now being carried out for the happiness of users and the beauty of the city.
