Cécilia Emma Wilson – You left Lomé at the age of eight and you are the nephew of a President. Do you have any memories of your childhood in Togo?

Claude Grunitzky – Many! I grew up in a family where politics were discussed a great deal in the 1970s. At the time, my father was involved as he was the Minister of Finance. It was a time of euphoria and optimism in the wake of independence. Everything could be  built or envisaged. There was much talk of the rule of  law and  creativity was at the heart of the discussions. There was a need to invent the conditions of economic growth and reinvent the State in  Africa.
