History

Togo.jpg

Germany enjoys an excellent reputation in Togo and is considered to be a privileged partner. The German colonial period (1884-1914) has remained to be mostly positive in the minds of the general public in Togo.

Relations cooled between the two in the 1990s on account of discrepancies in Tongolese policies regarding human rights and democracy. However they have improved again in recent years in political and economic fields. The Federal Government supports the democratization, reconciliation and reform process in Togo and Togo hopes for closer cooperation with Germany in all areas in the future.
