Togo: Business operators encouraged to invest in agriculture

(Togo First) - Last Monday, a meeting regrouping economic operators, representatives of the Togolese chamber of trade and industry (CCIT), the national employers’ council (CNP), various finance institutions and the ministry of agriculture took place in Lomé.

The roundtable aimed at introducing to entrepreneurs business opportunities existing in Togo’s agricultural sector.

Multiple opportunities are available in this sector, for example in regards to preparation of arable lands, extensions, crop and animal production, fish ponds, rice factories, logistics, packaging, storage, processing, fertilizer production, mechanization, maintenance, etc.

During the workshop, key projects were developed by the ministry of agriculture. These include a project to develop the Djablé rural plain and PARTAM, another project to develop the Mô plain.

In the long run, “the government wants economic operators to get more interested in agriculture.” This sector contributed 40% of Togo’s GDP in 2018.
