OCP Africa signed two Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Togo on 31 May, to enhance the cooperation in the mining and agriculture sectors
A statement from OCP Africa mentioned that the two agreements aim to promote the production of phosphate fertilisers from carbonated phosphate and improve the competitiveness of agricultural value chains.
The first agreement signed between OCP Africa and the Togolese Ministry of Agriculture aims to support more than 600,000 farmers, with the two partners agreeing to set up an agricultural service centre offering mechanisation services, irrigation, maintenance and agricultural inputs supply, along with training and technical support.
The second agreement signed between OCP Africa and the Ministry of Energy aims to allow the fertiliser giant to provide technical support and expertise to help in the development and local valorisation of phosphates from the mine. OCP Africa also highlighted that the MoU would not only increase Togo's self sufficiency, but also significantly contribute to the country's economy.
