Speaking at the event, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo assured that agriculture will remain a top priority of his government, saying they have invested heavily in the sector.
The positive narrative about the government's support to the agricultural sector is that, unlike several other countries, Ghana is better prepared, and has demonstrated resilience to the current adversities threatening to destabilise our food systems, he said.
