UNDP Togo seeks cooperation framework with the private sector

(Togo First) - UNDP Togo wishes to have a cooperation framework with the Togolese private sector. The ambition was expressed by the institution’s resident representative, Aliou Mamadou Dia, as he met with the head of the National Employers’ Council (CNP-Togo), Laurent Coami Tamegnon, last week.

The framework should serve as a platform to discuss issues the sector faces and recommend solutions.

Recommendations made via the framework will, in fine, enable the UNDP to take steps to “discuss the real issues of the private sector.” This is in line with the entity’s main mission, which according to the CNP, is to support “economic growth and create major changes.”

Aliou Dia added that other UN bodies would be mobilized to support Togolese private enterprises as part of efforts to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

UNDP Togo has been active in the country for many years. Recently, it launched the Togolese Facility for Acceleration and Innovation (FTAI). This project gets annual financing of CFA265 million and is aimed at supporting innovation led by local startups and SMEs.
