Trade relations with the EU

Cooperation between the EU and Togo is successful thanks to the convergence of interests in the economic and security fields.

The priority areas of cooperation for the programming period 2021-2027 were identified as: multilateral cooperation, peace and security, economic partnership to support the employment of the young generation, good and inclusive governance and the fight against climate change. In the fight against extremism, Togo’s security forces received financial aid in the amount of EUR million. As part of the National Indicative Program for the years 2014-2020, 216 million was allocated from the EDF.
