Bawumia Opens Agricultural Fair To Mark 2019 Farmers Day

As part of activities marking this year's Farmers Day celebrations, the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has opened a one-week Agricultural Fair in Ho, Volta Region.

The One Week fair, which would showcase products from all 16 regions, would bring together key stakeholders such as farmers, aggregators, processors, input dealers, researchers, policymakers and implementers and provide an opportunity for networking and knowledge sharing.

The Agricultural Fair is to give opportunity to Award Winners and the good people of Ghana to see and learn new technologies, machinery, research innovations and improvements and processing of agricultural products by the various stakeholders in the agricultural sector.

The government intends to gradually shift the focus of Agriculture in Ghana from a subsistence farming approach to an agri-business approach using the 2019 national Farmers Day as a starting point.

The National Farmers’ Day celebration offers a unique opportunity for a collective assessment of the impact of the farmers and fishers on the National economy.

It also provides the opportunity to identify key problems in the sector and most importantly those that affect the welfare of farmers, thus facilitating the determination of the way forward.
