A few days ago, Togolese President Faure Gnassingbé met with the visiting Foreign Affairs Minister of China, Wang Yi. The two men took the opportunity to review the cooperation between their countries, across several sectors, including economy, education, culture, health, agriculture, and infrastructure.

China and Togo have been nurturing their diplomatic relationship since 1972. 

This year, China will organize the 9th Forum on the China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) to which President Gnassingbé has been invited. 

According to the latest data, from January to July 2023, trade between Togo and China stood at $2.3 billion, up 14% year-on-year.
