(Togo First) - In Togo, the Industry Professions Training Center (CFMI) trains 70% of the youth hired by local firms. This was revealed by Laurent Tamegnon, chairman of the national council of employers -CNP.

This center aligns the government's ambition to create 500,000 jobs in the country by 2022, Tamegnon declared last Monday during a panel on challenges faced by the private sector, which are hampering the implementation of the 2018-2022 national development plan (PND).

Using performant equipment and machinery, the CFMI provides training in the five following sectors: diesel mechanics, metalwork - welding - industrial piping, mechanical maintenance, electromechanical maintenance, industrial refrigeration, and air-conditioning. The training center thus tackles the training-employment imbalance which is often referred to in explaining unemployment of young graduates.

Another good news for the CFMI is that it has recently signed an agreement with Niger's Water Company (SEEN), subsidiary of French group Veolia, to train its staff in diesel mechanics.
