A top-class business school to soon be created in Lomé

(Togo First) - During the 5th Annual Debate held in London last June 5-7, the Togolese Head of State, Faure Gnassingbé (photo), pled for the creation in Lomé of a top-class business school.

The President emphasizes that Lomé is a financial hub since it houses “the headquarters of several pan-African, regional or sub-regional financial institutions,” including Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI), West African Development Bank (BOAD), ECOWAS Bank for Investment and Development (EBID) etc. But there is no reference Business School in the city and Faure Gnassingbé is asking British investors to support the creation of such a training center as to create new professionals who could work in these institutions.

As a reminder such a project was evoked during the roadshow of the 2018-2022 Togolese Development Plan. The President believes the establishment of a business school of this standing could stimulate young people to start their own businesses.
