Ministry of Foreign Affairs launches a High Council for the Diaspora

(Togo First) - Togo’s minister of foreign affairs, Robert Dussey, just launched today, July 2, the High Council for the Togolese Diaspora (HCTE in French). This is a few months after he released the Togolese Diaspora Roadmap.

The new council, the official declares, “will represent the Togolese diaspora, and will serve mainly as a place for exchange and mutual trust with the government.”

Its launch marks a new step towards achieving its goal of mobilizing the diaspora to tackle obstacles to development.

The decision was driven by a constant growth over the past years of remittances from the diaspora, most of which serves recipients, friends and families.

Within the same framework of the newly launched council, a week for diaspora successes was initiated. Other measures included visa exemption for Togolese with dual citizenship and the creation of a website specifically designed for the diaspora.
