Agility plans to invest in Togo
President Faure Gnassingbé of Togo was joined by former British prime minister Tony Blair to talk about economic development at the Togo-UK investment summit in London.
Gnassingbé made his pitch to investors while announcing a new deal for a logistics hub in Lomé, after meeting with CEO Geoffrey White of Agility Africa and signing letters of intent with key company officials.
“It testifies to the vitality of the economic diplomacy of the head of state and already illustrates the first tangible repercussions of his trip to London,” the presidency said in a statement.
Blair has worked closely with Togo through economic development consulting as Togo implements its national development plan (PND). Establishing the port at Lomé as a logistics hub on the Gulf of Guinea is a priority of the plan. (mw)
