Togo: Tax Police Unit to soon adopt a new 5-year strategic plan

(Togo First) - The Togolese Tax Policy Unit (UPF) - a technical team that assists the Minister of Economy and Finance in the mobilization of domestic resources - has been working since November 30 on its 2022-2026 Strategic Plan. A methodological framing meeting for the elaboration of this document was opened for this purpose, in Lomé.

"At the end of the process, which officially begins today, it is expected that the 2022-2026 strategic plan of the Tax Policy Unit will be translated into a short-term action plan that will strongly support existing achievements related to the implementation of the reform that established the Togolese Revenue Office (OTR)," said Kossi Tofio, Director of Cabinet of the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

For his part, Ahiakpor Koffi Delalom, Director of the UPF, said: "We will examine all the elements which will allow us to have a methodological framework to draw our strategic plan that will serve as a compass for 5 years.”

Established through a collaboration between the Togolese government and its technical and financial partners, including the World Bank through the Economic Governance Support Program (PAGE), the UPF is a tool that supports Togo's fiscal policy.

As such, it, among others, monitors the OTR’s activities, proposes ways to modernize, simplify and improve the Togolese tax system, and steers the strategy for international tax relations.
