Togo: Gnassingbe receives Turkish president Erdogan

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has on Tuesday met with his counterpart in Togo as part of his three-leg Africa trip.

Erdogan and Faure Gnassingbe met in Lome for a day of discussions.

It followed a meeting with Angolan President João Lourenço on Monday in Luanda at the start of the trip.

But in Lome, “several high-level exchanges planned took place between the Heads of State, as well as working sessions between different delegations”.

It was notably a question of cooperation, prospects for partnership, and signing of agreements including the financing of the industrial platform of Adéticopé located at the northern exit of Lomé.

In less than a year, several Togolese ministers, including Foreign Affairs, Security and the Armed Forces have successively visited Ankara.

In Turkey’s trade balance, Africa does not weigh very heavily: less than 10% of its exports, compared to 56% to Europe and 26% to Asia.

But since 2003, the volume of trade between Turkey and Africa has increased fivefold, from 5 to 25 billion dollars.

Turkish investments on the continent have also exploded, amounting to 6.

5 billion dollars according to official figures.

Presidents of Burkina Faso and Liberia in Lomé
Beyond President Erdogan’s visit, the Presidents of Burkina Faso, Roch-Marc Christian Kaboré, and Liberia, George Weah, also visited the Togolese capital on Tuesday.

They joined in discussions later with President Gnassingbe.
