Agriculture, cotton production and regional trade are the mainstay of Benin’s economy, while the GDP totalled $18 billion with Per Capita of $1,791 in 2013.
Benin is endowed with fantastic natural environment. As a tropical region, the land is blessed with wildlife and rainforests, alongside with national reserves like Parc de la Pandjeri and Parc W. Its long coastline already attracts tourists, and various ongoing projects have been designed to draw more tourists in.
