WINDHOEK-- The Togolese Minister of Foreign Affairs, Co-operation and African Integration, Professor Robert Dussey, arrives here Thursday for a three-day official visit to Namibia at the invitation of his Namibian counterpart, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah.
The Namibian Ministry of International Relations and Co-operation said in a statement Wednesday that the main purpose of the visit is to exchange views on a wide range of issues on mutual interest. The two countries maintain cordial relations which date back to a pre-independent Namibia and they work closely together at bilateral and multilateral levels.
The two countries have also signed a co-operation agreement covering the economic, political, technical, scientific, commercial and cultural and social fields, which serves as a framework for bilateral co-operation.
Togo pursues an active foreign policy and participates in many international organizations. The West African country is among the smallest countries in Africa, but enjoys one of the highest standards of living on the continent owing to its valuable phosphate deposits and a well-developed export sector based on agricultural products such as coffee; cocoa beans and groundnuts, which together generate roughly 30 per cent of export earnings.
Dussey will return to Togo on Sunday.
