Togo urges Africa to emulate Chinese development model

Togo's Foreign Minister Robert Dussey has urged African countries to learn from the Chinese experience on matters of development.

"Through the Chinese experience and China's support, Africa should be able to craft its own development path and become a master of its own future," he said on Saturday during a dinner hosted by the Chinese ambassador to Togo, Wang Zuofeng, on the occasion to mark the 64th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

Dussey hailed the courageous economic reforms that China initiated for several decades and which enabled the country to become the second largest economy in the world.

"The spectacular economic outcome shows without any doubt that hard work, determination and discipline are the only ways that a developing country can achieve similar results," he said, noting that China remains a model for Africa.

The Togolese chief diplomat reaffirmed his country's determination to continue supporting the principle of "One and Indivisible China."

Ambassador Wang said China and Togo are "traditional friends and China still remembers the strong support it got from Togo for several years on issues of vital interest to China."

He said China will continue working with Togo to consolidate and deepen the traditional friendship between the peoples of the two nations as well as strengthen the Sino-Togo cooperation relation.
