  ACP-EU official says Togo has made remarkable progress

The co-chairman of the ACP-EU parliamentarian parity assembly and former European commissioner for development, Louis Michel (photo), said that Togo had made remarkable progress in governance since the March 2010 presidential election.
Briefing the press on the outcome of his meeting with the visiting Togolese Prime Minister Gilbert Fossoun Houngbo, Michel said: 'We made an appraisal of the political situation in Togo and I congratulated the PM for the remarkable progress made since the March presidential election last year.

'

Following EU recommendations, the Togolese government became more accommodating, bringing on board members of the opposition as ministers.

Michel also cited other positive gains as press freedom, which the Togolese media has been enjoying since the presidential election.

The Togolese Prime Minister was also received by the European Commissioner for Trade, Karel de Gucht, with whom he discussed agricultural raw materials, whose prices have risen on the international market.

Togo is a big cotton producer in West Africa, a product which price kept rising on the international market.

The Togolese delegation will move to the Netherlands on Wednesday, where it will hold talks with the government officials and businessmen.
