Africsearch picked to find experts who will make the ministry of finance more efficient

(Togo First) - In Togo, the Ministry of Economy and Finance appointed AfricSearch to gather a group of experts, high-level and junior executives, with different specialties and who operate across various fields. The recruitment aligns with the World Bank's Economic Governance Support Program (PAGE) in the country.  

In detail, the recruitment is aimed at bolstering the strategic and operational capacities of the budget and finance directorates as well as the economic studies and analysis directorate. It also covers the National Directorate of Financial Control and the one in charge of public debt management and financing.  

Each of these directorates will be assigned a senior manager and two junior managers. The newly recruited experts will collaborate with the department directors and carry out multiple tasks, ranging from the development of plans, policies, and other strategic documents to monitoring their implementation and evaluation. Additionally, another senior manager will be assigned to each human resources department of these directorates. 

Regarding the experts who will join the technical support unit of the ministry (of finance), their role will essentially consist of counseling the minister, providing him data, and in-depth analysis on sectoral issues. This would enable the minister of finance to better allocate available resources, hence ensuring efficient economic management of key sectors, as well as their development. These include education, health, agriculture, infrastructure, mining, energy, and water.

The Economic Governance Support Program or PAGE, it should be recalled, was officially launched in October 2018 for five years. The program which cost $20 million was financed by the European Union (EU) and the World Bank.
