Benin's Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) was validated in March 2006 with support from the World Bank and Denmark. The priority actions identified in the DTIS Action Matrix were incorporated in Benin's Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP), which was adopted in February 2007. The key DTIS recommendations incorporated in the PRSP included chapters on private sector support, diversification of the economy, promotion of regional integration and transport. Benin's current PRSP, the Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy (GPRS) 2011-2015 has also incorporated its trade priorities.
Under the IF, Benin benefited from Window II projects in 2007 including the financing of "Support Programme for Exports Development" (PADEX) with technical support of ITC, UNCTAD and UNDP. PADEX's objective was to help Benin integrate better into the multilateral trading system by promoting and diversifying its exports, products and services. These included fruits and vegetables, cashew nuts and tourism. The PADEX project was closed in August 2010.
