Invest in Togo

At the center of the Abidjan-Lagos corridor, which accounts for more than 60% of West Africa’s wealth, Togo is the natural gateway to the dynamic West African market. Togo’s natural positioning has been reinforced by a major investment policy in transport and logistics infrastructure that gives the country a unique place in West Africa. With stable economic growth of 5% over the past years and good control of inflation, Togo now wants to consolidate its achievements by ensuring harmonious and inclusive economic development. The New National Development Plan is focused on 3 mains areas: i / The establishment of a “world class” logistics hub and the development of a first-rate business center in West Africa , ii / the development of agricultural, manufacturing and extractive processing hub and iii / the consolidation of social development and the reinforcement of the mechanisms of inclusion. The important structural reforms program put in place under the framework of the Compact With Africa aims to promote private investment in priority sectors such as Agriculture, Energy, Road and Rail Infrastructure and Extractive or Manufacturing Industry.
