Togo

French-speaking Togo, with a population of 7.8 million and an area of 56,786 square kilometres, is one of Africa's smallest nations. Its capital, Lomé, is home to 1.5 million people.

Togo's economy is heavily dependent on agriculture, with cocoa, cotton and coffee among its leading exports. Togo is also a significant producer of phosphate.

Togo is a member of a number of the African Union, La Francophonie and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). The ECOWAS Bank for Investment and Development and the West African Development Bank are headquartered in Lomé.

The Australian Ambassador to Togo is resident in Accra, in neighbouring Ghana.
