The first meeting of the China-Togo Mixed Commission on Economy and Trade was held Friday to strengthen bilateral cooperation.

The meeting, jointly presided over by Togolese Foreign and Regional Integration Minister Leopold Messan Gnininvi and visiting Chinese Deputy Commerce Minister Wei Jianguo, was attended by seven other Togolese ministers, members of the Chinese delegation and some Chinese entrepreneurs.

At the meeting, both sides reviewed the development of bilateral economic and trade ties in recent years, and reached consensus on a variety of issues.

The two sides also signed seven agreements on economic and technological cooperation.

Under the agreements, China will provide financial aid for Togo to fund some projects chosen by the two governments, and supply materials worth 5 million yuan (about 700,000 U.S. dollars).

Moreover, China will help build an agro-technology demonstration center, two rural primary schools and one anti-malaria center in this Western African country.

The next meeting of the economic committee will be held in Beijing, with its specific date to be fixed.

An economic and trade delegation led by Wei paid a visit to Togo from Thursday to Saturday.

Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe and Prime Minister Komlan Mally met the delegation separately on Friday.
