The lack of adequate business-led development policy is negatively affecting the development of free entry into more profitable business in Togo. Thus, this is negatively affecting the external competitiveness of the country. This paper before evaluating the correlation between State Business Relationship (SBR) and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has investigated and explored the weaknesses in the business environment of Togo. This research has developed a formula for the calculation of SBR index and investigated the relationship between SBR and GDP by using Eviews version 6. This research finds that SBR is significantly contributing to GDP, hence strongly contributing to growth in Togo from 1960 to 2010. However, poor governance, administration deficiencies, bad state of infrastructure are the primary factors constraining business in Togo. Thus this requires the formulation of good institutional framework to facilitate free entry into more profitable business to enhance the development of Togo.
