EU, Agribusiness Chamber to launch a platform to increase investments in agric

The European Union (EU) in partnership with the Chamber of Agribusiness Ghana has launched the Ghana-EU Agribusiness Platform.

The platform will serve as a convenient space for agribusiness actors and stakeholders in Ghana and the EU to connect and exchange for a wider business and partnership opportunities.

Speaking at the launch, Chief Executive of the Chamber of Agribusiness Ghana, Anthony Morrison assured that there will be a 50 percent discount for the first 100 companies to sign up onto the platform.

“Today, we have a platform that has been set up to promote agribusiness, technology, investments and trade among others. Our expectations are that this platform will transform and enhance the credibility of Ghanaian and African businesses”, he said.

He stated that the project will look at companies or businesses that are legally registered.

“Also, any business that signs up ought to belong to any of the recognised associations. There’s a discount of 50 percent for the first 100 companies to sign up onto the platform and it’s applicable to anyone,” he said.

Treasurer of the European Chamber of Commerce, Andrea Ghia highlighted benefits Ghanaian companies could gain from European markets when they sign up onto the platform.

“We know very well that the agriculture sector is the most active and grows much better compared to other sectors. This was proven during the covid-19 pandemic. The sector has potentials in terms of quantity, quality, and skills improvement. Although there’s no direct exemption or benefit on the platform, through the platform you can access information from the West,” he said.

The Ghana-EU Agribusiness Platform is funded by the European Union and managed by the European Chamber of Commerce in Ghana in partnership with the Chamber of Agribusiness Ghana.

The Platform is created as part of the broader vision of establishing the AU-EU Agri-Food Platform envisaged to be an instrument to catalyse sustainable and inclusive investments in agriculture on the African continent.
