Togo wants to promote 4,000 artisanal businesses by 2025

(Togo First) - Lomé intends to promote at least 4,000 artisanal businesses by 2025. 

According to official sources, this aims at enhancing the contribution of craftsmen to the industrial development of the Togolese economy. 

In the same framework, sources close to the ministry of craftsmanship say artisans will be more involved in public contracts with 15% of procurements related to the sector reserved for local actors. 

To date, about nine (9) billion CFA francs has been spent to valorize the sector and its actors. Nearly 25,000 young artisans benefited from various training programs and 26 resource centers were opened. 

Also, last year, the first international market for craftsmanship was organized. Public authorities are also working to provide health insurance to all registered artisans of the country.
