Private sector to soon support the government in major school infrastructure projects

(Togo First) - Starting next year, the Togolese State intends to strongly rely on the private sector to accelerate the construction of school infrastructure - especially classrooms - needed in the country.

The decision, which will be reflected in public-private partnerships, was announced following the council of ministers held last Thursday. 

Already, informs the government, a fund of CFA195.5 billion should be allocated to the sector, under the 2021 budget. This represents 25.1% of the resources endowed to ministries and institutions for next year. 

Through its partnership with the private sector, the government hopes to provide more opportunities for (young) actors of the sector, especially those active in the construction sector. 

In addition to construction works, the allocated resources will serve to recruit and train educators, as well as to ensure that tertiary education better meets the needs of the labor market. 

As a reminder, the overall budget for 2021 is expected to reach 1,521.6 billion FCFA, down 7% compared to this year. After education, sectors that captured the greatest shares of the budget are health (10%), defense (10%), agriculture (8.4%), and access to clean water (8%).
