The U.S. Treasury Deputy Secretary Neal Wolin spoke before the Togolese National Assembly, emphasizing the partnership of the USA to aid Togo’s development. Wolin highlighted the importance of infrastructure, suggesting improved roads, irrigation systems, making affordable electricity available, and broader access to information technology. These will aid in improved regional trade and access to markets, particularly for farmers. The U.S. Global Agriculture and Food Security Program trust fund is supporting Togo’s first five-year agricultural development plan, which includes enhancing farmers’ market access, providing producer training, and higher-quality inputs, as well as reducing PHL.
