Authorities of PAL in Ouagadougou to discuss ways to improve trade between Togo and Burkina Faso

(Togo First) - Since last Monday, the Alliance for the Promotion of the Port of Lomé (AP2L) has been in Ouagadougou, in the framework of a meeting to boost trade between the port and Burkina Faso. The information was reported by Sidwaya.info.

The meeting which will close today is themed: “Retaining Lomé port’s clientele in Sahel nations.”  

Participants of the meeting will discuss ways to effectively tackle issues hampering goods transit.

According to Fogan Adegnon, MD of Lomé’s Port Authority and president of A2PL, many initiatives made the port more attractive and performant. These include “installations and equipment for ship handling, construction of bypass routes in Lomé and along the transit corridor, improved safety and maritime security measures, as well as measures to cut incidental expenses in all goods collection circuits.”

For his part, Hervé Sébastien Ilboudo, representative of Burkinabe business operators, deplored “insufficient beacons, the double collection of the electronic cargo tracking slip (BESC) and truck congestion.”

However, he welcomed the meeting saying: “This meeting with the authorities of the port of Lomé is the right place to find adequate solutions to ease trade.”
