In 2017, Togo imported about $32.5 million worth of goods from the US (UN Comtrade)

(Togo First) - In 2017, bilateral trade between Togo and the US amounted to $38.7 million, according to the UN international trade database Comtrade.

In detail, the US exported to Togo about $32.5 million worth of goods while Togo exported only $6.2 million to the United States.

Regardless of the significant volume US exported to Togo, it should be noted that during the year reviewed, it was the African nation’s 23rd export market (0.8% of its exports and its 13th import partner.

While it exported mostly raw materials and unprocessed products, such as minerals, fruits, grains and oils, to the US in 2017, Togo’s imports that year included mainly plastic products and derivatives ($8.1 million) ; oil and gas, mineral fuels, oils, distillation products ($5.4 million) ; engines and heavy machinery ($5.4 million) ; cereals ($5.1 million) and vehicles ($2.8 million).

Let it be recalled that back in 2010, Togo recorded its highest exports to the US, $11.7 million of goods according to Comtrade.
