Togolese parliament ratifies conventions to accelerate the operationalization of the Single African Air Transport Markert (SAATM)

(Togo First) - During their most recent session on October 1, 2019, Togolese deputies discussed security issues impairing air transport and services, as well as the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM).

The parliamentarians adopted two ratification projects. The first is the protocol to amend the convention on offenses and certain other acts committed on board an aircraft (Montreal, April 4, 2014), to boost the security and safety of planes, passengers and goods. The second is the agreement between Togo and the Saudi kingdom, relative to air services, signed on February 24, 2016, in Jeddah. This agreement, according to officials, falls under the PND and paves the way for economic exchanges between the two partners.  

Also, the parliament adopted a project for the adhesion of Togo to the constitution of the African Civil Aviation Commission (AFCAC) adopted on December 16, 2009, in Dakar, Senegal. 

According to Tsègan Djigbodi, President of the National Assembly, the adoption of these projects (unanimously) "will ease the operationalization of the Single African Air Transport Market (SAATM)."  

Let's note that the minister of transport, Zouhératou Tchakondoh-Kassah Traoré, and the MD of the national agency for civil aviation (ANAC), Gnama Latta Dokissime, were at the recent session.
