The Miato is officially launched

(Togo First) - On Monday, October 28, Togo's Craftsmanship International Market (Miato) officially launched.

The launching ceremony took place at the Palais des Congrès of Lomé and was chaired by Prime Minister Komi Selom Klassou.

Themed Innovative craftsmanship, a factor of social and economic development, the event aims to bring to light the genius and potentialities of Togolese craftsmen, promote artisan products and valorize the profession. It also intends to promote true artisanal businesses in Togo and boost tourism.

More than 160 exhibitors from the country's five regions and from 12 other countries will participate in the event.

The market we are launching should make Togo a first-choice destination in the region in line with the first and second axes of the national development plan, said craftsmanship minister, Victore Tomégah-Dobgé who also recalled that a fairground issuing citizenship certificates and birth certificates had been set up on the market's site.

Our cultural riches and know-how give us a great advantage on international markets and we must pursue this direction, said Niger's minister of tourism and craftsmanship, Ahmet Botto, also present at the launch.

Craftmanship contributes 18% of Togo's GDP and it employs nearly one million people, officially.
