Togo to fully formalize its road transport industry by 2022

(Togo First) - By 2022, Togo plans to undertake a deep reform of its road transport sector as it aims to make it more performant and professional.

In this framework, a meeting was held yesterday between actors, professionals of the sector, and international partners, such as the World Bank, that are backing the project.

Participants looked at key points of a four-month review of the sector led by the International Road Transport Union (IRU), as well as potential solutions which are to serve as guidelines for Togo to effectively transform its transport sector.

The review let’s note is part of a 41-month technical support program which is expected to improve legal and regulatory framework as well as boost capacities in the sector.

The reform, it should be emphasized, aligns with the first axis of Togo’s national development plan which aims at making the country a major logistics hub and first-class business centre in the region by 2022.

In Togo, the road transport sector handles more than 90% of goods and services moving across the territory. The government’s desire to modernize it and make it more competitive is thus quite justified.
