Benin Compact II

Benin was selected as eligible to develop a second compact by the MCC Board in December 2011. After completing the preliminary analysis and concept note phases, the Government of Benin is working on the concept paper to submit to MCC in April 2013. The concept paper will focus on improving the business environment and enabling infrastructure to reduce the cost of doing business and improve competitiveness of the agriculture sector and agribusinesses in Benin. Once MCC has assessed the project concept paper, a rigorous due diligence process will begin.
