The Togolese capital hosted from Thursday 1 to Friday, September 2, 2022, two days of work between Togo and Burkina Faso in order to further facilitate the transit of goods on the corridor Lome-Cinkasse-Ouagadougou.

We will discuss the problems we encounter at the port, at the level of the Lomé – Ouagadougou corridor, insisting in particular on a point to avoid destroying our highly developed infrastructure. We must ensure that we protect people, infrastructure and goods … ” said Minister Affoh Atcha-Dedji at the opening ceremony.
