China Tiesiju Civil Engineering group Co. (CTE), Ltd, which specializes in infrastructures, confirmed that it will build in Togo a motorway and an agricultural industrial park.

“We want to invest in infrastructures and have discussed with the president of the national assembly about the construction of a highway and an industrial park,” said Wang Chuan Lin, head of a Chinese delegation, after meeting with Dama Dramani, the national assembly’s president recently.

The head of the delegation emphasized that the firm would focus on training local workers. CTE “is ready to share with local firms its experience in infrastructures”.

The current announcement concretizes a commitment made by CTE last September, on the sidelines of the FOCAC, where Togo was to attract Chinese investors. At the time, Shao Gang, one of CTE’s executives, had, during a meeting with President Faure Gnassingbé, declared: “A study team will be in Lomé as soon as possible.”

The announced agricultural industrial park should be built in the Vo prefecture.
