Europe-Africa Agro project to conclude in Ghana

A project aiming to increase cooperation between Europe and Africa in the agricultural sector will end on September 10 in Accra, Ghana. The project, AGRO - Sustainable Agricultural Entrepreneurship for Young Workers in Africa and Europe, began in Modica in July 2015. The initiative was financed by the European Erasmus program and Key Action 2 "Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices - Capacity Building in the field of youth". Over 100 youths from the two continents took part, which sought to increase the skills of young workers, who hold much potential for EU partner countries. The focus was on those who are finding it difficult to attain employment. The head of the project was the Svimed association from Ragusa, which coordinated with several Italian and foreign partners. Participants - from Italy, Greece, Ghana and Cameroon - attended sessions focusing on the management of agricultural enterprises, marketing and financing opportunities for young entrepreneurs. They also took part in roundtable discussions with local and international entrepreneurs and visited the offices of Ghana-based companies that are market leaders in cacao cultivation and production.
