Donor’s Roundtable Discussion on WAGRIC Project: Togo seeks funding to double its N°1 national road

(Togo First) - Last Thursday, Togo was represented at the Donor’s Roundtable Discussion on Investment of WAGRIC Project.

At this occasion, the country presented its project to double the N°1 national road. “This should boost economic transactions by easing goods circulation,” said Etsri Homevor, General Secretary at the Togolese Ministry of Development Planning.  

Besides this project, two other similar ones have been submitted to lenders. These projects aim to improve road networks in the north-southern and east-western regions of the country, the Togolese representative indicated. Overall, Togo presented 15 projects that fall under its 2018-2022 national development plan.

The Project on the Corridor Development for West Africa Growth Ring Master Plan (WAGRIC) aims at fostering economic growth in West Africa, by leveraging the region’s economic potentials and available resources.

Conceived using as basis four countries in this region, namely Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Togo and Ghana, this plan was then extended to Benin. Planned over a period of 20 years, this plan’s execution is valued at $23 billion, according to WAEMU.
