While inaugurating the two-day workshop, Togolese Minister of Agriculuture Ouro-Koura Agadazi, said that by 2022 cotton production in the country could reach 200,000 tons, and the workshop aims to develop a strategy for remobilization of short, medium and long-term plans for cotton producers in order to solve the issues regarding field productivity, training, rainfall, labor, transportation and more.
 
The workshop saw participation from officials of NCST, the National Federation of Producers of Cotton (FNGPC), and various Organizations of Farmers in Togo (POs).
 
Cotton production in Togo during the 2012-13 cotton campaign was 80,000 tons.
