Togo and Ghana decide to open their borders

After the video surveillance system announced a few weeks ago by Togolese President Faure Gnassingbé, the land borders between Togo and Ghana once closed at 10 pm, will remain open 24 hours a day.

This decision, which came into force on Tuesday 1 August, strengthens cooperation between the two nations and respects the recommendations of the subregional bodies, in particular the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Recommendations related to the increased free movement of people and goods. By opening their borders, these two states will facilitate trade and allow their populations to access goods whose characteristics are often different from locally produced goods.
