Togo: 12th national farmer forum begins

(Togo First) - The 12th national farmer forum was launched on January 23, 2020, by the minister of agriculture, Noël Bataka. 

The forum is hosted at the Palais des Congrès. Its main focus is agricultural transformation. 

“No more subsistence farming,” declared Bataka after summing up the country’s performances in agriculture in recent years.  

The minister also urged the president of the chamber of commerce and industry, Germain Meba, to get more engaged in local transformation as this would reduce the trade deficit. 

Addressing farmers, he asked them to be more dynamic while reiterating the government’s commitment to keep supporting them, through existing mechanisms. 

The event received delegations from various nations, including Morocco with the Cherifian Phosphate Office (OCP), Israel, China, Germany with its cooperation agency - GIZ, and South Africa.
