Société d’Investissement et de Promotion de l’Industrie (SIPI-BENIN S.A.) is pleased to announce that five thousand (5,000) people are working in the Glo-Djigbé Industrial Zone Zè-Bénin (GDIZ).
Two years after its creation, and one year after the start of the first construction works, GDIZ becomes a main actor of the job creation for the benefit of the Beninese youth.
In Benin, creating decent jobs in large numbers, especially for youth and women, is a priority. The objective of full employment and decent work, ranked eighth in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 8), appears to be an imperative that the Government of President Patrice Talon is addressing in a holistic manner.
Glo-Djigbé Industrial Zone, born from the will of President of Benin to add value to the export products in the Republic of Benin and to promote better opportunities for wealth creation and employment for the population, already counts more than five thousand (5,000) workers. These workers include administrative staff, contractors and site workers. The Zone also generates countless business and indirect employment opportunities.
