How TecEx Can Help You Import into Togo
Togo is a small West African country, and like many others in the region, has high levels of poverty and unemployment ranking within the world’s poorest nations. Lying at 7%, Togo also has one of the lowest internet penetration rates. However, over the last few years, the country has produced several exciting inventions in the Tech space providing cheap yet effective alternatives to expensive gadgets. This drive to fill a gap in their developing economy led to 11 new Tech hubs being established across the country between 2016 and 2019. The innovation with limited resources seen here has also resulted in many labeling Togo as a leader in E-Waste.
Not only are its people taking it upon themselves to come up with cheap innovative solutions for their problems, but they are also making moves to improve education in the Tech sphere. This comes in the form of Togo’s first digital school. This non-profit offers classes in big data, digital marketing, software development, and digital business management. The school aims to uplift the population by providing training in these higher-paying areas so that Togolese people find and create opportunities in the home country. Although Togo still lags behind Tech leaders in Africa like Nigeria and South Africa, Togo should not be overlooked.
A with many African destinations, both pre-and post-inspections are required when importing into Togo, complicating the import process. Contact one of our TecEx specialists for a tailor-made solution to help clear your goods through customs quickly and reliably.
