In Togo, the ACCI commits to the development of local municipalities

(Togo First) - Lomé presently hosts a territorial branding workshop on the theme “Territorial intelligence: methods and tools to support Togolese municipalities.”

Started on March 1, the event will close on March 4th. Its main host is Guy Gweth, president of the African Centre for Competitive Intelligence (ACCI) and also the representative of the Federal association of German SMEs in Togo, Benin, Gabon, and Cameroon. 

The workshop aims to equip Togolese municipalities with tools to “sustainably attract tourists, researchers, qualified workers and investors,” thus tackling the lack of financing they experience. 

In the same vein, Gweth launched the PCL, a scheme aimed at making local African communities more attractive and competitive. The move should contribute to their economic development and improve their living standards, through diagnostics, multisectoral watch, and fundraising, both at the national and international levels. 

Among others, the PCL works for the identification, strategic structuring and international promotion of local products such as Kovié’s rice or Bassar’s yams, two municipalities of Togo.
