The Commanders Respond: Benin Armed Forces

Consequently, the Benin naval forces recommend a regional, comprehensive partnership agreement to develop a strong maritime community—managed by the MCC—to maintain an effective and sustainable governance in maritime public domain, harmonize laws and international regulations governing the maritime field, and encourage a good education and training program for partners in the subregion. 

Meanwhile, each country must make the effort to improve its means and ensure its own internal security. In this context, the Benin naval force’s short-term goal is to build a naval base in Seme, in addition to Cotonou and Grand Popo, to control its national and territorial coastline.
