Togo adopts a roadmap to revitalize social dialogue

(Togo First) - A week ago, on November 10, the national forum for social dialogue closed in Kara (420km north of Lomé). Participants, during the meeting, adopted a roadmap to reorganize and revitalize social dialogue in Togo. 

Actions laid under the roadmap should foster conditions for “sustainable social peace which will support the productivity of businesses and public administrations and consolidate social progress.

In detail, the document defines the government's support to the social partners for the training of workers, particularly in the sectors of health, mobile telephony, public works, the free zone, construction and public works, and national education, which have faced several challenges over the past decade.

According to Gilbert Bawara, Minister of Work and Social Dialogue, adopting the roadmap aligns with ongoing reforms in the work sector. The official also reiterated the government’s commitment to implement projects in which all stakeholders will be involved.

The national forum for social dialogue was organized in partnership with the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). It was also an occasion to assess social dialogue and its prospects in Togo.
