France to support Togolese media sector with more than €740 mln this year

(Togo First) - On June 19, 2018, Robert Dussey and Marc Vizy, respectively Togo’s minister of foreign affairs and France’s ambassador to Togo, signed an agreement under which the latter’s nation would finance the Training and Support Programme for Audiovisual and Media sector in Togo (PROFAMED).

In detail, the project will benefit from a financing of €493,000 from France over a two year period.

This new investment will add to the €250,000 which France already promised to invest in the project this year, according to the French embassy.

Put in place by the minister of communication and the French embassy, in partnership with the science institution of information, communication and arts (ISICA) of Lomé’s university, PROFAMED should significantly improve journalists’ skills, both private and public, through specific actions.

The PROFAMED divides into four major components. First is the legal and regulatory support of press professions; second is a continuous training for journalists with no prior training. Third is a module-based training programme for media professionals (audiovisual technicians, specialized journalists and employees holding supporting positions within press organs and media); and fourth is a battery of actions to valorize media’s reputation in Togo.
