Capacity Building Workshop Lomé


October 2022



GuarantCo, supported by the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) Technical Assistance and under the PIDG Institute banner, organised a three-day capacity building workshop on structuring and financing infrastructure projects in Lomé, Togo from 19th to 21st September 2022.  The main focus of the workshop was to increase understanding of infrastructure project financing and its benefits to help close the infrastructure financing gap in Togo.  In addition, the workshop acted as a catalyst for the development of effective and efficient project financing to help support economic growth, develop sustainable and essential infrastructure and create more job opportunities in Togo.

The workshop was opened by Lossou Djibom, General Coordinator Finance and Investment of the West African Development Bank (BOAD), and attended by around 50 delegates from BOAD, the ECOWAS Bank for Investment and Development, Ecobank, Societe Générale, Sunu Bank, BIIC Bank, NSIA Bank and representatives from GuarantCo’s clients Orabank and Kekeli Efficient Power/Eranove. This was the fifth capacity building workshop that GuarantCo organised in Africa following the events held in Cameroon (2019), Cote d’Ivoire (2020) and Tanzania and Malawi (2021).
