Togo: the First edition of Youth Innovation Week begins

(Togo First) - The first edition of the Togo Youth Innovation Week was officially launched Tuesday, January 24 in Lome. The event, which runs until Friday, January 27, celebrates youth innovation. 

The event is themed: "Innovation at the heart of a strong, inclusive, and prosperous economy". On the first day, participants attended a Keynote on "the concept of innovation, related issues, and prospects". The session was led by Jonas Daou, President of the Association of Large Enterprises of Togo (AGET).

The Youth Innovation Week aligns with the government's priorities to develop human capital. "The objective is to remain competitive with a pool of human talent. The quest for this structural transformation of Togo involves focusing on innovation through knowledge, technical skills, and experience of economic actors. Innovation remains a growth lever for our country because it is a response to the rapid changes in the global economic situation," said Rose Kayi Mivedor, Minister of Investment Promotion. 

Panels, B to B exchanges, exhibitions...are scheduled with prizes for the three best projects of the competition 228 Innov.
