Ghana has been participating in the 2019 Tea Expo being held at Hangzhou, China. Ghana was invited by the Chinese Government as Special Guest Country.
Food and Agriculture Minister, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, led a 20-member delegation to promote Ghana's chocolate and other cocoa products to Chinese consumers.
The delegation included a strong contingent from Cocoa Processing Company, Ghana Cocobod, Private cocoa processor Plotte Limited from Takoradi, MOFA, Ministry of Trade and others.
Ghana's stand became the toast of the Expo with hundreds of Chinese visitors streaming through to taste our cocoa products. On the day set aside to honour Ghana, the Chinese Minister for Agriculture and Rural Affairs Mr. Han Changfu and his deputy Dr Qu Dongyu visited the nation's stand.
The huge crowds were entertained by a Ghanaian dancing troupe accompanied by traditional music, much to the appreciation and amusement of the Ministers and the teeming visitors.
The organisers of the the Expo confirmed Ghana's stand was by far, the most popular.
