November 8, 2018
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday, 5th November, 2018, launched the Ghana Commodity Exchange, a platform for buying and selling listed agricultural commodities.
Speaking at the event, President Akufo-Addo noted that the Ghana Commodity Exchange, the first in West Africa, is going to be one of the key drivers of realising his government’s vision of becoming the agricultural hub of West Africa.
Even though Ghanaians farmers are responsible for feeding a nation of some twenty-nine million (29,000,000) people, the President stated that they are amongst a class of workers in the country with no guaranteed incomes for their labour and efforts.
