Last month, Annett Ongoiba Knudsen represented JGH Group at the fifth Benin Investment Forum in Cotonou, Benin.
The Benin Investment Forum is a unique platform for international investors and business partners to engage in high social impact business in Benin.
During the weeklong stay in Benin, Annett was accompanied by JGH Group’s local partner Jean-Noé Hodonou, CEO at BeninWest Business Consultancy. Together they met potential partners from the government and the private sector to explore the vast business opportunities in Benin.
Benin is a country characterized by high economic growth and an increased focus on industrialization and digitalization of key sectors. JGH is looking to contribute to this development in Benin by providing turn-key solutions for heavy equipment supply as well as renewable energy projects.
JGH also had the pleasure of visiting the new Industrial zone Glo-Djigbé Industrial Zone (GDIZ), still under construction. In this impressive production zone most of the Benin’s raw materials will be processed; among these are pineapples, cotton, cashew, soja and shea nuts.
