Africa CEO Forum 2019: Togo promotes its 2018-2022 PND

(Togo First) - Today as announced earlier, the special Invest in Togo session dedicated to the PND’s promotion in Kigali opened, chaired by the Togolese president.

Hosting the session are President Gnassingbé himself, Sani Yaya, his minister of finance, Gregory Krief, Managing director MSC Togo and the Lomé Container Terminal (LCT), and Frederic Dovi-Akué, MD Do Pharma SA.

“65% of funds needed for Togo’s national development plan will come from the private sector,” says Sani Yaya. To this, Aliou Maïga, Head of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) for West and Central Africa, responded: “The IFC believes in Togo’s potential. We are ready to back investors that are interested in venturing in this country.”

For his part, Gregory Krief, MD of Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), said making Lomé a logistics hub, the PND’s first axis, is already a “reality”. Talking about the country’s power strategy, he adds: “Today, Togo has the best strategy for universal electrification. It’s a good example.”

Frédéric Dovi Akue, MD of Do Pharma, then declared, valorizing human resources available in Togo: There are very qualified and motivated people with good theoretical bases. A manna for investors.”
