Investment Policy Review of Togo
The Investment Policy Review (IPR) of Togo aims to support and strengthen the impact of the efforts made by the Government. The IPR analyzes the policy, legal and institutional barriers that impede the potential of FDI and hinder the development of the local private sector. To overcome them, the IPR provides concrete and targeted recommendations based on UNCTAD's Investment Policy Framework for Sustainable Development. It also presents a strategy to attract and promote investments in more diversified activities. The proposed reforms also aim to encourage the emergence of a strong local private sector and to deconcentrate economic activity for the benefit of all regions of the country.
