Togo: Local chamber of commerce organizes B2B meeting with top German firms

(Togo First) - Lomé hosted on Monday, Nov. 27, a B2B meeting between some major German firms and young Togolese entrepreneurs. The German side regrouped representatives of big companies, like Bosch and Siemens. With the Togolese side, they discussed opportunities for investments and partnerships. The meeting was organized by the Togo Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI Togo) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)

"The Togo Chamber of Commerce and Industry and UNIDO have agreed to organize this meeting between economic operators from Togo and those from Germany, who have made the trip just for this," said Nathalie Bitho, acting president of the CCI-Togo. "Togo, and its economic operators, in particular, are looking for partnerships and want to develop networks with which to work. We are therefore taking advantage of the age-old relationship between Togo and Germany, taking into account the quality and expertise of the German service, to enable Togolese companies to benefit from it".

"We have come from Germany because we strongly believe that Togo is an excellent platform for investment. We have come with a delegation of German companies, from Siemens to Bosch, mainly active in the fields of agriculture and energy, because these are areas of the future where your country and ours can work well together”, said Prof. Rolf Steltemeier, of UNIDO's Investment and Technology Promotion Office (IPTO) in Germany.

Facilitating external relations

On the sidelines of the meeting, the CCI-Togo announced it will set up an office to facilitate similar events in the future, and to connect local businesses with foreign companies. "For economic operators who are not present today and who would like to get in touch with these German companies who are here, and perhaps even those who are not here, the CCI-Togo now has a dedicated service to put Togolese economic operators who so wish in touch with their counterparts in these brotherly and friendly countries", said Nathalie Bitho.
