Togo: President Gnassingbé inaugurates the aquaculture promotion center of Elavagnon

(Togo First) - Togolese President Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé chaired today June 18 the official inauguration of the Alternative Education Institute for Development (IFAD) of the town of Elavagnon, located 235 km from Lomé, in the prefecture of East-Mono.

This vocational center, dedicated to aquaculture promotion, aims to train students under the country's new agricultural policy and Axis 2 of the National Development Plan, which pays particular attention to agricultural development.

Following a 3-year training, designed on a skill-driven approach, the graduates will be able to start their own business. Training targets two varieties of fish: tilapia and catfish clarias.

Let’s note that IFAD Elavagnon is one of the 10 such centers the Togolese government intends to create across the country. The big project targets agriculture, logistics, construction, transport and digital technology, and is expected to reduce youth unemployment and underemployment.
