Cristina Martins Barreira ends her term as the head of EU delegation in Togo

(Togo First) - After serving as head of the EU delegation in Togo for the past three years, Cristina Martins Barreira ended her mandate in the country last week.  

In this framework, she was received on August 21 by Togolese PM, Komi Selom Klassou who bid her farewell. “From Togo, I keep in mind the welcome of the Togolese people, good relations with authorities. I have always felt at home and I leave with a little regret,” she said.

Officially appointed as the head of the EU delegation in Togo in September 2017 (replacing Nicolas Berlanga-Martinez), Barreira worked to improve the cooperation between the EU and the West African nation, especially relative to actions supporting decentralization - In this area, a major milestone was reached last year with the organization of the first local elections in 30 years.

Above all, one of the major achievements recorded during the outgoing executive’s three-year term was the first Togo-EU Economic Forum (FETUE) organized in June 2019. The FETUE laid foundations for a new impetus in relations between Togo and the Old Continent, particularly in the area of investment.
