WINDHOEK, 14 MAR (NAMPA) Togolese Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and African Integration, Professor Robert Dussey will be in Namibia on Thursday as part of a three-day official visit.
A media statement issued by the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation on Wednesday stated that the visit is on invitation of his Namibian counterpart, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah.
The main purpose of the visit, according to the statement, is to exchange views on a wide range of issues on mutual interests between the two countries.
Namibia and Togo maintain cordial relations that date back to a pre-independent Namibia and work closely together at bilateral and multilateral levels.
The two countries have also signed a cooperation agreement on economic, political, technical, scientific, commercial and cultural and social fields, which serves as a framework for bilateral cooperation.
Togo pursues an active foreign policy and participates in many international organisations.
The west African country is among the smallest countries in Africa, but enjoys one of the highest standards of living on the continent owing to its valuable phosphate deposits and a well-developed export sector based on agricultural products such as coffee; cocoa bean; and groundnuts, which together generate roughly 30 per cent of export earnings.
Dussey will return to Togo on Sunday.
