Government announces the second edition of “consume local month”

(Togo First) - For the second time, consecutively, Togo will have a “consume local month.” The announcement was made on the Twitter account of the Ministry of trade, industry, and local consumption. 

The event is scheduled for October, the month decreed by member states of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) as the “consume local month.” 

On this occasion, many activities will enable concerned actors to work together, valorize and promote the consumption of local goods and services, by the Togolese population. 

In the same framework, a measure introduced by Prime Minister Victoire Tomegah-Dogbe urges ministries and State companies to prioritize the consumption of local goods. 

Also, the Organization for Food and Local Development (OADEL) explained that “Supporting public orders for local food products is a commitment to sustainable socio-economic development in Togo.”
