Togo: Fully renovated, the Kara market officially comes back online

(Togo First) - At last, after 7 years of reconstruction, Kara’s new market is completed. The facility was inaugurated last Monday, by President Faure Gnassingbé.

Located in the Lama district, the renovated market spans nearly six (06) hectares. It includes a three-story building, a green space, an esplanade, and a parking lot. The market is equipped with 736 individual stalls, 72 stores, 5 premises dedicated to banks and insurance companies, 8 wholesale stores, 6 equipped cold rooms, a police unit, and an infirmary.

It also came with an automatic fire protection system, a central roadway for firefighters, and equipment routing in case of an explosion.

According to President Gnassingbé, "This infrastructure is intended to support the economic activities of our fellow citizens and facilitate access to products and commodities of primary necessity."

The construction project was carried out as part of the PARMCO, the project supporting the reconstruction of markets in Lomé and Kara. The PARMCO is financed by the government and the African Development Bank (AfDB). Together, they poured CFA8 billion into the project.
