Togo and Mauritius look to tighten their economic relationship

(Togo First) - Togo and Mauritius are looking for ways to bolster their economic cooperation. Indeed, the Togolese President, Faure Gnassingbe, and Dhanesswurnath Vikash Thakoor, CEO of the National Financial Services Commission of Mauritius, discussed various possibilities in this regard, yesterday, Nov. 29, during an audience that the President granted the executive.

"We discussed the possibilities of partnership in the coming days, between Mauritius and Togo, to work more closely to promote economic exchanges," the Mauritian executive said, adding “I will relay the president’s message to our prime minister so we can accelerate the process.” 

The tête-à-tête took place on the sidelines of the African Financial Industry Summit (AFIS) recently held in Lomé. Commenting on the forum, the Mauritian representative, according to the Togolese Presidency, lauded the “successful organization” of this international meeting which "augurs a better future for financial inclusion on the continent".

The economic rapprochement between Togo and Mauritius began in 2013 when the former relied on the latter’s financial expertise while reforming its tax administration and creating the Togolese Revenue Office (OTR). A few years later, Lomé and Port Louis formally established diplomatic relations, with the signing of an agreement in New York in 2017.
