Togo: PND to help create 4,200 artisanal businesses by 2022

(Togo First) - Support the creation of 4,200 artisanal businesses by 2022, and make them competitive as well as wealth and job generators. That is Togo’s ambition for the craftsmanship sector, in the framework of the 2018-2022 national development plan (PND 2018-2022).

Leveraging the sector’s performance – it employs nearly a million people and contributes 18% of GDP – the State wishes to turn its artisans into professionals, by establishing a social protection system that will cover them, and reinforcing resource centres in all prefectures.

In addition, fairs and similar events will be organized yearly across the country’s five regions which may turn into artisanal hubs. Finally, an adequate financing mechanism will be put in place to this end.

In this framework, Togo intends to improve both the institutional and organizational framework related to the promotion of artisanal businesses, reinforce the system of learning, training and perfecting craftsmen, and lastly reinforce the system supporting craftsmanship.

Let it be recalled that all these ambitions fall under the second axis of the PND which aims at developing agro-processing, manufacturing and mining poles in the country.
