Togo: the Government held its second annual seminar this week

(Togo First) - The Togolese government closed its second seminar for 2022 on Tuesday, Sept 13. The meeting, chaired by President Faure Gnassingbé, covered key topics like urbanism, health, and boosting private investment.

The country’s authorities also reviewed issues such as the digitization of public services, the operationalization of the Tinga Fund, agricultural mechanization and the promotion of agropoles, the mapping of socio-economic infrastructures, and resource mobilization. 

Part of the talks, which involved some technical partners and experts, also focused on the cross-cutting issue of social welfare.

In this framework, the Togolese government said it will extend its health insurance project, relying on digitalization to better reach vulnerable populations, as part of the initiatives that are backed by the World Bank Group in Togo.

"Regarding social protection, the government's actions will aim at the generalization of health insurance, notably through more reforms in the health system, biometric identification, and the creation of the single social register," said the Togolese Presidency at the end of the meeting.

Efforts to improve the business climate have also received special attention from the authorities who aim to strengthen the attractiveness of the country. "The socio-economic development strategy is supported by the constant improvement of the business climate to strengthen the attractiveness of the country to private investment," the presidency added.
