The PAG lists 342 projects across 23 sectors.  Potential infrastructure projects include road, airport, and railway construction, port expansion, housing, telecommunications and information technology, and energy.   Overall, the Government of Benin seeks to leverage Public-Private Partnerships to advance infrastructure projects for a new international airport, the proposed extension and modernization of the Port of Cotonou and improving or building new roads supporting major transport routes.
