Togolese PM presents Togo’s key assets at Rencontres Africa forum

(Togo First) - The Rencontres Africa forum opened today in Lomé. On this occasion, Victoire Tomégah-Dogbé, Togo’s PM, presented to investors five major assets that make her country the perfect place for investments.

Tomégah-Dogbé gave her speech during a panel on climate business. Another eminent figure present on this panel was Lionel Zinsou, former Prime Minister of Benin and founder of Southbridge. Zinsou advised Togolese authorities in the framework of the transfer of the Nouvelle Société cotonnière du Togo (NSCT) and the negotiations with Arise regarding the Adétikopé integrated industrial platform (PIA).

The Togolese PM, during the opening panel, focused on her government’s vision for growth, peace, security, the youth, the country’s strategic positioning, and the commitment of local authorities to pursue reforms. 

Regarding Togo’s vision, she stressed that Togo is a country whose leaders know what they are doing and where they are going, due to a clear vision. A vision which, she added, helped foster a peaceful and safe environment, “a key prerequisite for any ‘serious” investor.”

In regards to the positioning of Togo, Victoire Dogbé mentioned its access to the sea which makes the country a door to landlocked states and a regional logistics hub.

Concerning reforms, noting the significant achievements made by Togo, the Togolese official said “we will continue introducing bold reforms” to create a more attractive environment for investors. 

The Rencontres Africa gathers more than 350 Togolese economic operators, over 100 French businesspeople, and around 2,000 other participants.
