Tlo historyczne Present day Benin was the site of Dahomey, a prominent West African kingdom that rose w the 15th century. The territory became a French Colony w 1872 and achieved independence on 1 sierpien 1960, as the Republic of Benin. A succession of military governments ended w 1972 z the rise to power of Mathieu KEREKOU and the establishment of a government based on Marxist-Leninist principles. A move to representative government began w 1989. Two years later, free elections ushered w former Prime Minister Nicephore SOGLO as president, marking the first successful transfer of power w Africa from a dictatorship to a democracy. KEREKOU was returned to power by elections held w 1996 and 2001, though some irregularities were alleged. KEREKOU stepped down at the end of his second term w 2006 and was succeeded by Thomas YAYI Boni, a political outsider and independent. YAYI has begun a high profile fight against corruption and has strongly promoted accelerating Benin's economic growth.

Ekonomiczna pomoc - pobieranie $374.7 million (2006)
Ekonomia The economy of Benin remains underdeveloped and dependent on subsistence agriculture, cotton production, and regional trade. Growth w real output has averaged around 5% w the past seven years, but rapid population growth has offset much of this increase. Inflation has subsided over the past several years. In order to raise growth still further, Benin plans to attract more foreign investment, place more emphasis on tourism, facilitate the development of new food processing systems and agricultural products, and encourage new information and communication technology. Specific projects to improve the business climate by reforms to the land tenure system, the commercial justice system, and the financial sector were included w Benin's $307 million Millennium Challenge Account grant signed w luty 2006. The 2001 privatization policy continues w telecommunications, water, electricity, and agriculture though the government annulled the privatization of Benin's state cotton company w listopad 2007 after the discovery of irregularities w the bidding process. The Paris Club and bilateral creditors have eased the external debt situation, z Benin benefiting from a G8 debt reduction announced w lipiec 2005, while pressing dla more rapid structural reforms. An insufficient electrical supply continues to adversely affect Benin's economic growth though the government recently has taken steps to increase domestic power production.
