It supports employment policy and income-generating activities. It promotes the creation of sustainable and qualified jobs and the creation of high value-added activities.
The Code also promotes, on the one hand, the use and the development of local resources and raw materials and, on the other hand, the transfer of skills and the use of new technologies.
It facilitates the establishment and operation of new and existing companies targeting the Togolese market, the regional (WAEMU/ECOWAS) market and the international market.
