Togo : Phosphate exports soared by 28.5% in 2018

(Togo First) - In 2018, the whole West African Economic and Monetary Union produced 2,738,100 tons of phosphate. This is 18.6% more than the 2,307,900 tons it produced the year before, according to the BCEAO’s latest annual report.

The rise in output was spurred by a sustainable demand, driven mostly by Togo where phosphate output grew by 28.5% over the year reviewed, and Senegal where it soared 14.1%.  

Besides phosphate, more gold was also produced across the union in 2018. In opposition, production of uranium and oil fell by 172% and 16.3% in Côte d’Ivoire and Niger, respectively.
