Based in France, the RDI Buying group wants to promote excellence in aircraft mechanics, pupils, professionals of media and in its partners. This through the establishment of a prize called “René Descamps International Prize of Excellence“.
Last Tuesday in Lomé and for the second consecutive year, the company rewarded the best Togolese journalists selected on the basis of a number of criteria well defined by the promoters.
A total of five (05) journalists were rewarded in the following categories: Best newspaper journalist, Best journalist of the on-line press, Best TV journalist, and Best radio journalist.
Certificates were also awarded to these 5 prize-winner journalists.
The prizes consist of working equipment as laptop, tablets, smartphones, recorders, telephones, cameras, transcription software.
According to Mr Eric Ametsipé, the Representative of RDI in Togo, the idea is to support the development actors to excel themselves in their domain.
“For a country to emerge, it is necessary for the development actors among whom media to be excellent. But being excellent requires means. That is why the RDI Company chose to invest in human resources by redistributing its profits. It is the purchases we make for the company that allow us to provide these prizes“, underlined Mr Ametsipé.
Coming back on the selection criteria in the sector of the media, the latter supports that “it is those who make good comments to attract investors, to mobilize a lot of energies towards the country, those who show that Togo can benefit from this to improve such sector, those who support the RDI“.
“We would like to keep this flame and if it is maintained over 5, or 10, 20 or 30 years, it is the actors of the country that will be efficient and consequently, the development will be easy“, the RDI Representative in Togo moreover asserted.
The awards ceremony that took place in a prestigious hotel of the town, also served as the opportunity of launching the edition 2015 of the “René Descamps International Prize of Excellence“.
