Authorities work on strategy to boost e-commerce in Togo


In line with efforts to become a digital hub by 2025, Togo plans to implement an e-ecommerce development strategy backed by a five-year project going from 2022 to 2027. 

To this end, the authorities are carrying a study to assess the e-commerce sector in Togo, and determine what is needed for the strategy to succeed. 

The move takes place as the country tries to democratize the use of digital payment modes (credit cards, mobile money, etc) by public administrations. It should, experts say, spur a boom of e-commerce in the country. 

It is important to note that in 2018, mobile money transactions alone generated CFA607 billion. Also, many private private and institutional initiatives promote online trade in many sectors, ranging from agrofood, logistics, and transport to electronics, cosmetics, etc.
