Togo bets on digital technologies to restart its tourism industry

(Togo First) - As the country eases restrictive measures aimed at containing the Covid-19, Togolese authorities plan to use digital solutions and ICTs to promote tourism and boost the sector’s performances. 

Among others, a new portal will be created to give a new momentum (...) to Togolese tourism through digital technologies and social networks, the minister of tourism, Kossivi Egbetonyo, on the world tourism day. The tools, he added, will be useful “to restart tourist activities.” 

Here, both international and (especially) local tourists are targeted. Indeed, the government also plans to “promote domestic tourism and proximity tourism.” 

In line with the move, which should help boost the revenues of a sector severely hit by the pandemic, many projects are underway. According to Egbetonyo, the latter includes works to “rehabilitate the Womé waterfalls site in the Kloto prefecture, the blast furnaces of Nangbani in the Bassar prefecture, as well as exploring for new sites in various prefectures.”
