Welcome to the Port Autonome de Cotonou

Joris Albert THYS
Chief Executive Officer

Since January 2018, The Autonomous Port of Cotonou has changed course with the objectives of modernizing facilities and equipment, expanding the Port of Cotonou, repositioning it, and transferring skills to local staff.

New challenges and new perspectives are emerging thanks to the reforms undertaken to improve the company's profitability, which is a guarantee for the sustainability of jobs.

Each day brings us inexorably closer to a new era of competitiveness and attractiveness with a smart port now anchored in digital, thanks to the implementation of our 2021-2025 master plan which includes structuring projects.

Today, in my capacity as Director General and guarantor of the partnership between the Government of Benin and the Port of Antwerp International (PAI), I would like to affirm my firm commitment to pursue the mission that has been entrusted to me, for its total success.

We will maintain all efforts to perpetuate the activities of the Port of Cotonou and to contribute more to the growth of the national economy.
