From Lomé, MSC Interconnects African Countries, General Manager Says

(Togo First) - Gregory Krief, General Manager of MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company), attended the Choiseul Africa seminar in Abidjan on September 14. On the occasion, he expanded on how the company contributes to the development of Africa's maritime sector, through its activities at the Port Autonome de Lomé.

In the panel entitled: "Sustainable Value Chains in Africa: Strategy, Industry, Finance," Krief noted that MSC plays a major role in connecting African countries among themselves, on the one hand, and to the rest of the world, on the other. The Swiss-Italian giant attributes this position to its presence at the Port of Lomé.

"As one of the few players to interconnect Africa through the Port of Lomé, we perceive this position as a unique opportunity. We can leverage our commitments to sustainability to improve delivery times, enabling our customers to receive their goods faster by supporting the development of national economies," said Gregory Krief during his speech.

Indeed, after closing the acquisition of Bolloré Africa Logistics at the end of 2022, MSC unveiled its ambition to strengthen its presence in Africa from Lomé. An ambition that is already taking shape, according to Gregory Krief, who added that "a dematerialization of processes between sea, land, and customer combined with collaboration with partners and relevant administrations will help shape a more sustainable future for Africa and for the planet."

The Choiseul Africa seminar is a regular event organized by the Institut Choiseul in partnership with the Confédération générale des entreprises de Côte d'Ivoire (CGECI). This year, it attracted over 200 participants, according to the organizers.
