  • Abstract

    Like many developing countries, Togo is facing a deficit of financial resources that leads to a dependence on international financial institutions. A better mobilization of internal resources could allow this country to reduce its deficit of resources and better control its process of economic development and poverty reduction. This is why in this article; we analyzed the determinants of public revenues in Togo. To which we have made using an error correction model suggest that per capita income, value added manufacturing and mining and the opening on the outside are the main factors that positively influence public revenues. Agriculture is essentially subsistence and thus weakly imposed, its added value has no significant effect on the public revenues.
