On behalf of President Guillaume Athanase Talon and the government of Benin, Agbénonci expressed high appreciation for the Chinese government's involvement in the project and fully affirmed the sincere cooperation and unremitting efforts of the working teams of China and Benin. 

Since the Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, China-Benin cooperation has rapidly developed. The Benin side is pleased to see that with the gradual improvement of the business environment in Benin, an increasing number of Chinese enterprises are participating in the country's economic development. This is a practical result of implementing the consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries and also a great factor in joint cooperation in the Belt and Road Initiative. He said he expects that both sides will promote the steady development of friendly relationships and cooperation.
