NEW AFRICA BUSINESS NEWS, Accra, Ghana- REPORTS FROM Togo indicates that the Government on May 23, 2019, paneled a session to review and validate a new mining policy in Togo’s capital Lomé.
The policy is aimed at paving the way to a new strategy to exploit mining resources.
According to Togo’s Minister of Mining, Marc Ably-Bidamon, the policy under review “determines types of investments, fostering economic growth on one side and helping reduce poverty through mining-related activities.
This, he said aims at promoting a sustainable, transformation-centered, mining sector, one that meets the ‘people’s legitimate expectations.’
The validation process falls under the Mining Governance and Development Project B
Let’s recall that last month, still under the PDGM, two Bachelors degrees, one in mining geology and another in analytical chemistry, Mining and Environment, were launched at the University of Lomé, in order to train a new generation of mining experts in Togo.
