Cooperation: Germany committed over CFA65 billion to Togo last year

(Togo First) - Germany committed more than CFA65 billion to Togo last year. The figure was mentioned during a strategic meeting between officials from the two countries–a meeting held in Lomé on April 8, 2022.

The money was used to finance a set of reforms validated in March 2021 by the two partners.

During the meeting, Lars Wilke, Director of West Africa at the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, and head of the German delegation said: "Most of the reform indicators we agreed on last year are on track. I am confident that it will be possible to fully achieve the goals we have set together by the next intergovernmental negotiations.”

Satisfied with the progress made so far, the Togolese and German officials suggested recommendations for new commitments to further bolster their political and economic cooperation. These commitments cover the sectors of health, climate, and renewable energy, in line with Togo’s 2020-2025 government roadmap.

Germany, let’s emphasize, also supports Togo in implementing development policies, especially relative to the management of the Covid-induced health crisis.
