The Government's objectives in the transport sector include improving the maintenance of the road infrastructure and the competitiveness of the Togolese corridor for transporting goods to the landlocked countries of the hinterland.
The development of the national logistical infrastructure occupies a central place in the Government's strategy, which aims to make the country a platform for transit traffic in the sub region. The government has implemented a series of measures to positioning the country as the hub of choice for trade and logistics service provision. These measures included physical investments in the port and the road networks; the establishment of a single window for foreign trade; and the improvement in the doing business in Togo.
Togo has two international airports (Gnassingbé Eyadéma International Airport (AIGE) and Niamtougou); five domestic airfields, and four landing strips. A few years ago, the Government invested in projects which made it possible to provide the AIGE with a new terminal operational since 2016. Costing around US$150 million, the works have increased the annual capacity to 2 million passengers and 50,000 mt of freight (as compared with an initial level of 600,000 passengers and 15,000 mt of freight).
