Agritech West Africa official launch - Coverage in Ghanaweb.com

14 Jan, 2020

The agriculture sector in recent years has appreciated significantly with the introduction of agronomical practices, improved seeds, technology and many more, yet the sector has not been fully utilized.

To contribute to the realization of technological advancement in the sector, the WegVoraus in collaboration with Ghana-Indian Trade Advisory Chamber has launched AgriTech West Africa 2021 at the Ministry of Business Development conference room in Accra to provide a dynamic platform for Agribusiness community in Ghana and West Africa to count with global agritech suppliers and innovators.

He mentioned that the programme would usher great business opportunities among exhibitors and the general public as the programme would converge investors across countries in the value chain at Accra.

“This programme we believe will guarantee the lifespan of cocoa and other farm products through Agriculture technologies. Since Ghana is the second-largest export of cocoa in the world, we challenge Ghana to take advantage of this initiative and learn to process more products from cocoa. This would reduce the long-distance that a farmer has to travel to have access to farm machinery, spare parts and technical supports in some cases,” he explained.

He further noted that plans have been made to invest in the agriculture sector if the government extends its technical support to the agriculture sector.

A representative from the Ministry of Food and Agriculture said that the government is in full support of the project and appealed for more investments in the agriculture sector. He advocated that the sector employs more than 50 percent of the Ghanaian population and this project would revamp and encourage the youth to take agriculture as a culture to agribusiness level. To him, this would help to prevent poverty in the country and the sub-region and this serves as a clear indication of a growing partnership between Ghana and India.

“This is a huge collaboration between the people of Ghana and Indians which will bring a lot of transformation into the agriculture sector. This will help create more jobs and make agriculture a lucrative industry to attract the youth even though the government is doing her best in this regard in the sector. Government is ready to support any private entity ready to invest in the sector,” he said.

The AgriTech West Africa 2020 would exhibit agriculture practices, farm machinery, seeds, agrochemicals, dairy, poultry, livestock equipment, and agri processing technologies from India, Europe, China, Ghana, etc.
