Harnessing Agricultural Innovation: Deputy Minister Ignites Ghana’s Agribusiness Evolution

Addressing stakeholders at the 3rd Agritech West Africa Exhibition in Accra, Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Hon. Yaw Frimpong Addo, passionately champions the innovative spirit driving Ghana’s agribusiness landscape.

Emphasizing the pivotal role of the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ2) initiative, he encourages Ghana’s youth to capitalize on the dynamic opportunities embedded within the sector’s multifaceted value chains. Under PFJ 2.0, entry barriers are dismantled, ushering in a new era of sustainable farming zones designed to foster climate-smart agricultural practices. This strategic approach not only targets achieving self-sufficiency in staple crops but also places a strong emphasis on advancing broiler production and processing within the poultry farming domain.

In alignment with this visionary agenda, Mr. Manish Gupta, the Indian High Commissioner to Ghana, underscores the enduring partnership between the two nations. With a steadfast focus on technological integration, Ghana aspires to amplify its agricultural output for global trade, bolstered by India’s steadfast commitment to providing modern equipment and expertise.

In a collaborative endeavor with esteemed partners such as the West Africa Chamber of Agriculture (WACOA), CropLife Ghana, the Association of Ghana Industries, GUTA, and the Food & Beverage Association of Ghana, the upcoming Wegvoraus Exhibition is slated to host the 3rd edition of the Agritech West Africa exhibition.

Scheduled to unfold from the 19th to the 21st of March 2024 at the prestigious Accra International Conference Centre, this three-day event will run concurrently with the Food & Beverage Ghana Foodpack Tech Ghana exhibition, under the auspices of both the Ministry of Food and Agriculture and the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Ghana.

Promising to encompass the entire agricultural value chain, the Expo is poised to attract approximately 100 exhibitors from India, South Africa, Turkey, Nigeria, Ghana, the United States, Europe, and other regions.

These exhibitors will showcase a diverse array of products spanning agrochemicals, agricultural technology, irrigation solutions, biofeeds, food processing and packaging technologies, innovative food products, as well as processed and packaged food & beverage items.

Collectively, these initiatives signal a promising trajectory towards a prosperous future, wherein agriculture serves as a cornerstone of economic growth and sustainability in Ghana.
