Lomé's airport to soon have its first hotel

(Togo First) - Société Aéroportuaire de Lomé-Tokoin (SALT) is looking for a firm to build the very first airport of the Gnassingbé Eyadéma international airport (AIGE).

SALT has in this framework launched a call for the manifestation of interest for investors willing to build and operate the infrastructure. They have until April 3, 2020, to manifest themselves. 

The hotel's construction aligns with the government's efforts to make tourism one of the pillars of the Togolese economy, according to the communiqué announcing the call for the manifestation of interest. Indeed, under its 2018-2022 national development plan, Lomé aims at raising tourism's share in GDP to 6.2% in 2022, from 4% in 2015, with at least 10,000 decent jobs created in the process. 

Another goal of the government, regarding tourism, is to increase income per visitor to about $700 in 2022 (against $520 in 2015).
