VEGETABLE importers who bring goods into Ghana without permits will face stiff penalties, the country's Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture in charge of Crops has warned.
A permit must be released by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture before products can be imported, Yaw Frimpong Addo stressed in a recent statement. It is hoped the move will encourage more Ghanian growers to produce crops for the country, making it more self-sufficient.
In a recent article on ghanaweb.com, the Deputy Minister said the Ghanian government is keen to sustain investment in his country's own agriculture so the sector can succeed, with support from the private sector.
