UNIDO, Togo explore ways to bolster collaboration

The Togolese Minister for Investment Promotion, Manuella Santos, was in Vienna, Austria, last week. She met with Gerd Müller, Director General UNIDO. Together, they explored ways to reinforce the collaboration between the West African country and the UN’s organization for industrial development.

The meeting took place on the sidelines of the 20th session of the Organization’s General Conference. During the conference, the two sides discussed setting up a new country program focusing on agro-industry, as well as the implementation of the Montreal Protocol on industrial substances harmful to the ozone layer.

Müller assured Santos that “the UNIDO will support (Togo) with quality infrastructure”.

Three months before the recent meeting, the organization’s representative in Togo had also made the same claim. This was in Lomé, in a meeting with Togo’s Prime Minister. Also, a few weeks ago, the UN agency facilitated the visit of several German companies to Togo.

The UNIDO’s mission is to promote, stimulate, and accelerate industrial development across its member states.
