The new representative of the World Bank in Togo, Mr. Félix Sissoko was the guest, yesterday, of the Prime Minister, Victoire Tomégah-Dogbé. At the end of the interview granted to him by the head of government, Mr. Félix Sissoko said he was happy to join the WB team and work in Togo. Indeed, the country has made, over the past three or four years, very important reforms which have led to tangible results, particularly in terms of the business climate and macroeconomic balance, he explained. Therefore, it is important to support Togo in the implementation of these reforms, through the modernization of public administration and the structural transformation of agriculture, with a view to positioning Togo as a logistics hub in the West African sub-region. To do this, the representative of the World Bank in Togo also intends to bring the international expertise of his institution in the matter, for the successful implementation of the government roadmap. In this sense, Mr. Félix Sissoko intends to draw on the experiences of Vietnam and Singapore, two Asian nations that have succeeded in modernizing their countries and eradicating poverty, while creating significant economic opportunities for their populations.
