Togo's NA adopts government's action programme

Togolese MPs on Friday voted for an action programme proposed by the country's new government when the Prime Minister, Gilbert Houngbo, presented it to Parliament.



The government's action programme is based on four major themes - strengthening of national cohesion and good democratic governance; boosting the economy; unity and development and new diplomacy.



The government's new five-year mandate (2010-2015) opts for an “ambitious term” which focuses on “true economic take-off coupled with an attractive development for foreign direct investment and the search for innovative financing”, but it also gives priority to political issues.



Several political, constitutional and institutional reforms, in addition to the reform of justice, the promotion of human rights and civil liberties are expected to be carried out, as well as actions aimed at establishing national reconciliation to strengthen national cohesion.



At the economic level, the new programme, as the previous one, lays emphasis on the country's economic levers and the modernization of socio-economic and strategic infrastructure.



“The boosting of the country's economy cannot be achieved until a true Marshall plan on infrastructure is implemented,” the PM said.

The government programme was approved by 61 out of the 81 MPs in the House.



The ruling Rally of Togolese People (RPT) voted en mass for the programme, as well as 7 MPs from the opposition Union of Forces for Change (UFC) who were present during voting.
