Faure calls for reforms, creativity in 2008

Togo President Faure Gnassingbe on Tuesday urged members of his cabinet to initiate reforms and be creative in the running of the country.

"Year 2008 will be, first of all, a year of challenges which the Togolese people will take up," he said in his New Year message."The government, this year, will act, reform and be innovative," Gnassingbe added, as he recalled difficulties in the country during 15 years of the suspension of European cooperation and several socio-political crises. The EU restored cooperation with Togo after last October's election.

"We will continue in the political field to hold talks with the opposition and civil society in a spirit of reconciliation and establish frank and constructive dialogue with social partners for challenges," he said.

Gnassingbe urged his countrymen and women to be productive and break with old habits such as absenteeism, waste and corruption. He also pledged to work for social justice.
