China donates engines to Togo

Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe on Thursday presided over a ceremony of donation by China of mechanical equipment for road construction. The donation of 1.8 billion FCFA (3.6 million U. S. dollars) is part of China's efforts to boost its strategic partnership forged at the 2006 Beijing Summit on Sino-African cooperation.

The Chinese ambassador to Togo, Yang Min, handed over the equipment to the Togolese president. He said the donation was another proof of the reinforced bilateral cooperation between the two countries and the deepening of friendship between their people.

"We hope that the equipment will help Togo to construct rural roads and be able to turn around her economy," he said.

"China will continue to help Togo in her efforts of making progress in maintaining stability and economic development," the Chinese diplomat added.

 

According to Togo's public works minister, Comlan Kadjie, the warehouse of engines is well stocked and will henceforth support effective execution of great road construction works that are confronting the country.

The Chinese donation is intended to help Togo in its efforts to reduce poverty by facilitating the movement of people and goods in both urban and rural areas, the minister said.

He noted that China has been faithful to its commitments to bringing sustainable development assistance to Togo.
