Togo's cotton sales to the EU in 2018 up by more than 50% compared to 2017

(Togo First) - Togo sold $11.3 million of cotton to the European Union last year, according to the UN Comtrade database. This is a notable increase (+50%) compared to 2017 where the West African nation exported about $7.5 million of the crop to the EU. 

Inversely, Togo imported less cotton-based products from the EU over the period ($29.7 million in 2018 against $29.8M in 2017). This helped slightly reduce Togo's trade deficit with the European Union, putting it at $18.5 million last year.   

While the EU purchased far more cotton from Togo last year, it should be emphasized that these sales represent only about 0.3% of all the EU's cotton purchases over the period.
