Immigration: More Togolese prefer staying in Africa than going to Europe  

(Togo First) - Only 8% Togolese would go to Europe if they had to emigrate. This was revealed in Afrobaromètre’s latest survey on emigration in Africa.

The survey conducted in November 2018 indeed shows that 4 out of 10 Togolese would rather go to another West African country (43%) or another region in Africa (12%).

These figures align with a global trend emerging across the continent.

Africans often leave the continent seeking jobs, youth and graduates especially, or due to poverty which they are fleeing from. In Togo for example, 35% of the surveyed by Afrobaromètre say they would emigrate in search for a job. Other factors like “democracy and freedom” or “peace and security” only motivate 4% of the surveyed.

Let’s note that this year, Togo launched its national development plan which aims at creating 500,000 jobs by 2022.
