Togo launches a new platform to promote its tourism industry

(Togo First) - Togo just launched a new platform to promote its tourism sector. The digital portal, Togo Tourism, was presented today (September 27), by the Minister of Culture and Tourism, Dr. Gbenyon Lamadokou, as the country celebrated World Tourism Day. 

The platform, according to the Minister, will provide "real-time information" on the offers and opportunities for tourism in Togo. In parallel, an agency will be set up to oversee tourism operators in Togo and boost the quality of tourism services. 

The year, the theme of World Tourism Day is “Rethinking tourism”. An official celebration ceremony was held at the University of Lomé (UL).

Tourism is, according to the associated ministry, a very important sector for Togo. Because the country wants to attract more investors, become an international hub, and be a preferred destination for business tourists.

In 2021, the sector generated CFA25 billion in revenue, for 983,969 tourists who visited the country, against 481,706 in 2020 (ed. note: Covid hit the country and the sector that year).
