“Ghana could generate up to US$5 billion annually within five to ten years”

As Ghana’s economy has been shrinking by 3.2 percent at the end of the second quarter of 2020, research by the Alliance for Development and Industrialization (ADI) has unveiled that the country could generate up to US$5 billion annually within the next five to ten years. This could be accomplished  through the development and expansion of non-traditional crops in the country.

According to the research, in the next five to ten years avocados alone could generate US$1.2 billion, citrus US$1 billion, mango US$1 billion, coconut at least US$600 million and cashew about US$600-900 million.

According to the ADI research, Ghana’s government should partner with the private sector to handle the development, establishment, management, post-harvest and processing, as well as positioning Ghana to be able to fit into the various markets not with the raw materials but with finished products.
