Ghana to boost vegetable and cut flower business with greenhouses - Agric Minister

The government has started constructing greenhouses to start the development of vegetable seeds to help boost Ghana’s vegetable cut flower production sector.

Three of the greenhouses are at various levels of completion, with the first one located at Akumadan in the Offinso North District expected to be inaugurated by President Akufo-Addo in February 2020.

Speaking at a panel session at the opening ceremony of the maiden Results Fair organised by the Ministry of Monitoring and Evaluation in Accra on Tuesday [January 14, 2020] the Minister of Food and Agriculture (MoFA), Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, said Ghana was aiming at becoming like Kenya in the vegetable and cut flower business.

The other two greenhouses, he said, were located at Dawhenya and Accra West.

Dr Afriyie Akoto said Kenya derives about US$3.billon from the vegetable and cut flower business from the European market alone.

That, he said, if Ghana positions itself well, could equally rake in a lot of foreign exchanges through the vegetable and cut flower industry.

The 3-day Results Fair, organised under the theme: “Delivery results for citizens work in progress” is being organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Monitoring and Evaluation to enable Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government to interact with citizens, civil society and the media to explain progress of implementation and achievements of government’s flagship programmes and other strategic interventions.

The various ministries would take turns to showcase projects under their watch to the media and the public.

Many of the ministries as well as departments and agencies have mounted their booths at the inner frontage of the Accra International Conference Centre, where the event is taking place.
