Lomé will host the West Africa Livestock and Meat fair in May

(Togo First) - From May 7 to May 10, this year, Lomé will host the West Africa Livestock and Meat Fair (SIBVA 2020). The regional event will take place at the Eda Oba hotel in Lomé. 

One of the peculiarities of this fair, which is backed by the Togolese government, is that it aims to foster public-private partnerships for better development of this sub-sector (ed note: livestock and meat) that can drive economic growth and wealth, said Togo’s minister of agriculture, Noel Bataka. The official then urged actors concerned to efficiently contribute to the successful development of the livestock and meat sub-sector. 

Let’s note that this industry accounts for nearly 50% of Togo’s GDP. It is a major job and wealth provider. 

Before Togo, Côte d’Ivoire was the first to host the SIBVA in 2016. The fair is organized by the West Africa Confederation of National Federations for Livestock and Meat (COFENABVI-AO).
