Togo-India Partnership: President Gnassigbe recently met India’s ambassador

(Togo First) - The Togolese President, Faure Gnassingbé, met India’s Ambassador to Togo, Ram Saajiv Tandon last Tuesday. They reviewed the relationship between the two countries and talked about cooperation prospects for 2023.

"We talked about many areas of cooperation where we have made a joint effort to promote our bilateral ties in recent months. I took the opportunity to relay to the President of the Togolese Republic the wishes of the President and the Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of India," the Indian diplomat said after the audience.

In recent years, Togo and India have collaborated in the clean energy and investment sectors.

The highlight of their partnership was in June 2021. Then, Togo secured a major loan–CFA22 billion–from India to electrify 350 of its localities. India is also engaged in the Industrial Platform of Adétikopé (PIA), which is a big project in Togo.

Last year, Togo attended the 17th CII-Exim Bank Conclave on India-Africa Project Partnership Participants explored opportunities for bolstering the two regions’ partnership in the energy, trade, and industry sectors.
