Trade Ministry moves to promote cashew value chain in Africa

The Ministry of Trade and Industry (MoTI), has introduced master training programme (MTP) for the promotion of cashew value chains in Africa. The programme, which seeks to create a pool of qualified experts along the cashew value chain to facilitate knowledge exchange, learning and innovation within the cashew sector in West Africa and beyond, is also to sustain its support for Ghana’s cashew industry. Mr Fredrick Yaw Alipui, Policy Advisor at the Ministry, said this during the the opening ceremony of the second session of the third edition of the Master Training Programme (MTP3/2) on cashew value chain promotion on Monday in Sunyani. The five-day international event, funded by the Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, was organised by the Competitive Cashew initiative (ComCashew) together with African Cashew Alliance (ACA), the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) and the Cocoa Research Institute Ghana (CRIG).
