The import duties currently levied on imports consist of an import tax, an infrastructure protection tax, a statistical tax and Community taxes. The simple average of these import duties, excluding the infrastructure protection tax and Community taxes, is 19.5% with very low dispersion. Import duty rates show a generally negative escalation. In addition to import duties and taxes, a VAT of up to 18% was introduced in 1995. The report notes that Togo`s WTO ties cover only a small number of products. 48. Under the current circumstances, Togo, like the least developed African countries in general, has hardly participated in the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations and has not participated in the formal signing ceremonies of the Final Act of the Uruguay Round, which took place in Marrakesh, Morocco, on 15 April 1994. The IIA navigator will be constantly adapted following the review and comments of UN Member States. It is mainly based on information provided by governments on a voluntary basis. A contract is included in a country`s IIA census as soon as it is formally concluded; Contracts whose negotiations have been concluded but not signed are not accounted for. A contract is excluded from the IIA`s census as soon as its termination takes effect, as soon as it continues to have a legal effect on certain investments during its survival period (“sunset”).
In case of renewal of a contract, only one of the contracts between the same parties is counted. Depending on the situation, the counted treaty may be the old one if it remains in force until the ratification of the newly concluded IIA.
