Togo: new regulatory boss named

27 October 2020

Michel Yaovi Galley has been appointed director general of Arcep (Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Posts), an institution responsible for regulating the electronic and postal communications sector in Togo.

Formerly technical advisor in charge of digital transition projects, Galley will take the head of the structure, following a decree dated October 15, 2020.

The regulator’s prerogatives include managing and controlling state-approved telephone operators, issuing licences for independent networks and managing radio-electronic frequencies.

The entity, set up in 2015, replaces the ART & P (regulatory authority for the post and telecommunications sectors).
