Le rapport souligne la nécessité pour le Bénin de prendre des mesures adaptées pour atténuer les coûts d'ajustement liés à la libéralisation commerciale. Il insiste sur la nécessité de politiques complémentaires pour améliorer la capacité de l'offre, ce qui exigerait une nette amélioration de l'infrastructure physique, une augmentation de la productivité du travail et une amélioration de la gouvernance économique.
