Beninese President Thomas Boni Yayi has expressed gratitude for the help China has offered regarding infrastructure construction. President Yayi is in China to attend the Summer Davos Forum in Dalian. In this exclusive interview with CCTV, Boni Yayi says China figures prominently in Benin's education and transport plans.

Thomas Boni Yayi said, "For us, China is one of the main pillars sustaining many fields in our country, like children's education and socialization. China has given us much help, for example in the transport area. Our economical capital has always been trapped by a large laguna and ever since China has helped us to build the roads, the transportation of the area is really improved and that also facilitates services around the city. We also cannot forget the efforts done by China in sanitary aspect, like the hospitals that China gratified us, etc. Now China has become our important partner that helps Benin reach so far."
