Togo: Government wants private sector to contribute at least 40% of investments in digital sector, by 2020

(Togo First) - In line with its goal to make the country a logistics, financial and digital hub, the government of Togo plans to engage private sector more into digital development.

This is revealed in the government’s 2018-2022 strategic vision for digital sector. According to the document, the government wishes for private sector to contribute at least 40% of investment made in the sector starting from 2020.

The strategy revolves around four main axis which also will focus on 66 key projects, to which government expects private sector to greatly contribute.

The above-mentioned projects include: deploying 3G, 4G and satellite technologies, creating a digital platform to process applications for works on telecom infrastructures, or equipping broadcasting centers for DTT. In addition, a geographic information system (GIS) covering all network infrastructures should be developed and  other projects that are likely to boost Togo’s digital economy.

All these projects should, under the government’s predictions, help provide access to broadband internet to 90% of population and 95% of companies in Togo, by 2022.
