The new headquarters of Ecobank was inaugurated on Tuesday in Lomé by President Faure Gnassingbé, in the presence of Arnold Ekpe, the head of the Bank and a hundred guests from Africa, Europe and the United States. We noted the presence of former Nigerian head of state, Olusegun Obassandjo.
The complex of four buildings located on the Boulevard de la Marina overlooking the ocean, was built by the Chinese company Ceedi.
Employees of the institution will have to wait for a few months before joining the new headquarters because the work is far from over. The exterior glass is completed, but the interior is just beginning.
In total, the bank will have 42,000 m2 of office space.
The Prime Minister Gilbert Houngbo delivered the opening speech paying special tribute to Koffi Gervais Djondo, one of the founders of Ecobank.
Ecobank, with headquarters in Togo, is a true success story.
Population growth and economic pre-emergence create a new deal for the banks on the south of the Sahara, where Ecobank has taken advantage by expanding into thirty African countries.
The banking system in Africa is the most profitable in the world. A situation that attracts many institutions.
