EU-Togo: 22nd political dialogue was held in Lomé yesterday

(Togo First) - Lomé hosted yesterday the 22nd session of the Togo-EU political dialogue. The meeting was co-chaired by the Togolese minister of foreign affairs, Robert Dussey, and the head of the EU representation in Togo, Joaquín Tasso Villalonga.

Attended by several Togolese ministers, the roundtable revolved around political, economic, social, and common interest issues.

“Togo is a reliable and strategic partner on which the European Union can count,” said Robert Dussey during the meeting. 

“We have covered many topics, such as the health situation and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, gender equity, regarding which Togo is exemplary, especially when it comes to women leadership,” commented Joaquín Tasso Vilallonga. “...We also talked about economic governance and the preparation of the next summit between the European Union and the African Union,” he added. 

The two partners looked at how Togo contributes to peacekeeping and stability in the region. 

The EU, let’s recall, is one of Togo’s biggest trade, technical and financial partners. In addition to receiving many of the West African country’s products, such as its organic soybeans, the European Union helps Togo in many aspects, such as fighting poverty, decentralization, education, and economic governance.

The Union is Togo’s second-biggest donor, CFA10 billion in 2019.
