World Bank VP, West and Central Africa, lauds human capital development in Togo

(Togo First) - Togo has made significant investments and introduced several reforms to improve human capital. In a three-day visit to the country that ended on March 11, the World Bank VP for West and Central Africa, Ousmane Diagana, made the statement. Diagana had just met with Togolese PM, Victoire Tomegah Dogbe.

Throughout his stay, the World Bank executive met various officials with whom he discussed the government’s roadmap and its implementation. Mostly, they assessed existing initiatives between both sides, the Bank’s support in key areas, and Togo’s top development priorities.

“We anticipate positive results for our initiatives aimed at improving access to basic services, citizen participation, job creation, and opportunities for the youth,” said Diagana.

After his various meetings, the World Bank VP reassured the Togolese authorities of the “Bank’s constant support for resilience and performant programs.”

The World Bank’s support of Togo’s roadmap focuses on three major axes: stimulating the rural economy and modernizing agriculture, improving human capital, and reconstituting the fiscal space. In September 2023, the Breton Woods institution approved the disbursement of $170 million to support sustainable and inclusive development policies and the resilience of the West African food system (FSRP).
