Dutch program helps Ghana to overturn EU banThe Ghana Vegetable (GhanaVeg) Programme, which was introduced by the Dutch government, is working through the horticultural value chain to help Ghana overturn a European Union (EU) ban on exports of selected vegetables.
The EU last year banned the exports of chillies, aubergine and other vegetables from Ghana to stop the introduction of pests into the ecosystem of the EU. Also affected are gourds and Asian vegetables.
According to the Senior Business Adviser of GhanaVeg, Mrs Sheila Assibey-Yeboah, Ghana has, since the ban, lost more than $2 million worth of exports of selected vegetables to the EU market.
She said it was to address the challenges that the Dutch government introduced the GhanaVeg programme to help the country deal with phytosanitary challenges, boost production and increase exports.
