    Concluding Observations

    Adopted at 51st Ordinary Session, 18 April - 2 May 2012, Banjul, Gambia.

    The Togolese government presents its 3rd, 4th and 5th cumulative periodic reports, covering the period from 2003 to 2010. It contains a description of national measures under the Charter, according to its Articles.

    "523. Togo remains convinced that its socio-economic development must be routed through respect for Human Rights. Undoubtedly, the current development of the country shows an improvement in the Human Rights situation. Nonetheless, the effective enjoyment of socio-economic rights still remains low due to the repercussions of the international financial crisis on the already precarious purchasing power of the populations.
    524. The Government has innumerable challenges to address and can only succeed thanks to the combined effects/efforts of bilateral and multilateral cooperation.
    525. Evidently the integral establishment of democracy and the Rule of Law is a long term undertaking but for the Togolese Government, it is more than a duty to create an enabling environment for the effective respect of the Human Rights guaranteed by the national and international legal Instruments."
