The economic development of the Port of Lomé is so significant - Dominique Chantrel (UNCTAD)

(Togo First) - Between 2013 and 2017, the volume of Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) containers handled at the Port of Lomé, has tripled from 311,470 to 1,193,841.

Dominique Chantrel, who is in charge of managing the UNCTAD’s port programme, declared during a coordination meeting for the TrainForTrade : “The economic development of the Port of Lomé is so significant and has made this infrastructure one of the world’s largest.”  

This reminds of a similar comment by Ammar Kanaan, new head of the Lomé Container Terminal, who recently said: “The port works well and productivity at its docks is rising year-on-year making our terminal one of the most performant to date.” Kanaan also revealed a €500 million investment plan aimed at increasing to four million the port’s containerized traffic.
