Nearly a million tourists came to Togo in 2021

(Togo First) - In 2021, 983,969 tourists visited Togo, compared to 481,706 in 2020 when the country had been hit by Covid and related measures.

The Minister of tourism, Gbenyo Lamadokou, disclosed the figures on the eve of World Tourism Day. 

Togolese tourism is thus recovering, same as other countries worldwide - thanks to travel resumption and the relaxation of most health measures.

Besides the number of visitors, Togo’s tourism revenues also rose, from CFA19 billion in 2020 to CFA25 billion last year, up 34%. For Minister Lamadokou, "this result is, on the one hand, attributable to the government, which through the gradual deployment of the Covid-19 vaccine, the adoption of several measures and the easing of restrictions on travel, has helped restore consumer confidence for the takeoff of tourism, and on the other hand, to the Togolese people who have shown a renewed interest in travel within their beautiful country.” 

Let’s recall that in 2018, a good year for Togolese tourism, the country received 712,000 tourists, and hospitality revenues stood at CFA48 billion.
