Ghana is targeting to export 200,000 tonnes of cashew, by 2027, Mr Eric Amoako Twum, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA), said on Wednesday.

He was speaking to Ghana News Agency (GNA) in an interview on the sidelines of a meeting on the implementation of the National Export Strategy, vis-à-vis the One - District-One-Exportable-Product, in Sunyani.

The National Export Strategy was launched in 2013 for implementation after extensive consultation.

Its key tenets advocate the identification, development, and promotion of at least one exportable product per district.

Mr Twum explained that the Authority was pursuing a-10-year Cashew Development Plan to achieve the target.

Currently, the country is exporting approximately 70,000 tonnes of cashew, he explained.
