Togo records highest performance on maritime connectivity index in Sub-Saharan Africa, after South Africa

(Togo First) - Spurred by activities at the Port of Lomé, which is West Africa’s only deep water port, Togo’s maritime connectivity index improved significantly. In fact, the nation is in Sub-Saharan Africa, the second best, after South Africa, according to United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

In Africa, Togo is fourth on the index. It comes after Morocco, Egypt and South Africa.

According to UNCTAD, Togo’s performance has more than doubled in less than a decade.  Indeed, the index which was at 14.2 in 2010 soared to 33.9 in 2017, against 37.4 for South Africa.

Though it presents nips at the heels of SA, Togo could very well beat the rainbow nation by 2020, looking at Africa’s second largest economy’s progression on the index. Truly, the country’s index slumped from 43 in 2013 to 37.4 last year.
