Benin - Communications Development Project - PPER


This project performance evaluation report (PPER) concerns the Benin Telecommunications Development Project for which the Bank approved, on 18 April 1990, an ADF loan of MUA 6.93 and an NTF loan of MUA 7.00 which were signed in November and May 1990 respectively and which entered into force on 21 July 1992. These loans were on-lent to the Post and Telecommunications Authority (OPT), beneficiary and project executing agency.

The project falls within the framework of the emergency actions of the priority investment programme (88-93) defined on the basis of the telecommunications master plan (1985–2005) prepared with the assistance of the UNDP. The sectoral objective of the project is to improve the quality of the service by facilitating the access of urban and rural dwellers to basic services, and to help step up the efficiency and competitiveness of economic operators. Its specific objective is to meet the additional demand especially of Porto-Novo until 1995, and to strengthen OPT’s financial and institutional capacity.
