WAEMU: Lomé hosts the 9th Annual Review of Community and Programs

(Togo First) - Togo currently hosts the 9th edition of the Annual Review of Community Reforms, Policies, Programs and Projects of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) kicked off in Lomé on November 02, 2023, and ends on November 6, 2023. 

For this evaluation session, 131 texts as well as five community projects and programs will be assessed by experts from the WAEMU. The long-term goal of the exercise is to improve living conditions of the Community’s people.

Last year, the annual review revealed significant progress in reform implementation. Kanan Bouhari, Permanent Secretary of the ECOWAS Unit, representing the Minister of Economy and Finance, underlined the ongoing commitment of governments to pursue structural reforms in various areas.

In Togo, projects backed by the WAEMU “concern agriculture, husbandry, craftsmanship, energy, industry, etc.,” said Traoré Abasso, director of public finances and domestic taxing. These include a regional water development program, structuring and development programs in several agricultural sectors, and construction work on a livestock market in Tsévié and another in Cinkasse.
