Government reviews new mining policy to foster the sector’s growth  

(Togo First) - Yesterday, a session to review and validate a new mining policy in Togo was opened in Lomé. The policy should pave the way to a new strategy to exploit mining resources.

The policy under review “determines types of investments, fostering economic growth on one side and helping reduce poverty through mining-related activities, says Togo’s minister of mining, Marc Ably-Bidamon, who initiated the review session.

This aims at promoting a sustainable, transformation-centered, mining sector, one that meets the “people’s legitimate expectations.

The validation process falls under the Mining Governance and Development Project (PDGM), backed by the World Bank.

Let’s recall that last month, still under the PDGM, two Bachelors degrees, one in mining geology and another in analytical chemistry, Mining and Environment, were launched at the University of Lomé, in order to train a new generation of mining experts in Togo.
