COLEACP supported the organisation of a meeting between the Plant Protection Directorate (DPV) of Togo and fruit & vegetable exporting companies in Lomé from 1 to 2 June 2021.
The meeting aimed to promote public-private dialogue and to improve communication dynamics and relations between the DPV and operators.
Discussions focused on the interception of leafy vegetables exported from Togo to the EU and the urgent measures taken to solve the problem; the ongoing development of a Good Practice Guide for leafy vegetables in Togo; the operationalisation of the mango, chilli and aubergine dossiers; and the Guide developed by COLEACP to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in businesses. The meeting also provided an opportunity to learn about the current concerns and expectations of exporters, which will be taken into account in the organisation of future activities.
This activity was organised within the framework of the Project to Strengthen the National Phytosanitary Control and Certification System for Fruit and Vegetables in Togo, supported by the Standards and Trade Development Facility (STDF) project and implemented by COLEACP.
