The Fish port of Lomé has resumed activities

(Togo First) - The fish port of Lomé which was under rehabilitation restarted operations last Thursday.

Located in Gbétsogbé (east of Lomé), rehabilitation works were covered by a large grant (XOF14.4 billion) from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and about XOF6 billion provided by the Togolese State.

The facility's rehabilitation aims to "improve livelihood of people, their earnings especially, by improving fish quality and cutting down post-harvest losses," said Damtani Ali, Director of Fishery and Aquaculture.

Overall, authorities plan to consolidate nearly 8,000 jobs through this infrastructure. They also anticipate the creation of about 5,000 new jobs (direct and indirect).

Fishery contributes 4.5% of Togo's agricultural GDP and 1.3% of its GDP.
