(Togo First) - The second edition of the FERIN fair, an event that is aimed at improving trade and investments in Togo, began yesterday. Due to the Covid-19, it is held online this year. 

The theme of the fair is Man at the heart of economic and sustainable growth

Organized by the Terreau Fertile Association, the two-day meeting will gather many panelists, notably the Togolese economist Kako Nubukpo, the minister of trade, Kodjo Adedze, UNDP’s resident representative, Aliou Dia, entrepreneur Ghislain Awaga, the tax authority head commissioner, Phillipe Kokou Tchodie, and Didier Acouetey. 

According to the president of Terreau Fertile, Bileyo Donko, the panelists will discuss key topics like the importance of investing in human capital, challenges related to digital transformation, local consumption and its promotion, taxation, decentralization, and public procurements. 

Also, a contest - the T-Fertile contest - will take place in the framework of the fair, and entrepreneurs taking part in it will have the chance to win one million CFA as first prize.
