Ghanaian govt to monitor functioning of cotton sector

Jun '12
The Ghanaian Government is mulling over establishing an authority to monitor functioning of the domestic cotton industry.
 
Speaking at a meeting of cotton industry stakeholders in Accra, Mahama Ayariga, a Deputy Ministry of Education, said the authority would help in regulating the activities of middlemen and help in curbing illegal exports of the commodity.
 
Meanwhile, the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) will release a sum of US$ 250,000 for revival of Ghana’s cotton sector and ensure that farmers gain access to quality seeds, which would enable them to produce cotton that meets international standards.
 
This was revealed when a UNIDO delegation headed by its country representative Frank Van Rompaey met Ghanaian Vice President John Mahama, at the Castle, Osu.
 
The delegation visited Ghana to attend a workshop on ‘Ways to enhance Ghana’s Cotton Sector’.
 
During the meeting, Vice President Mahama requested the UNIDO to also focus on other aspects in order to create newer employment opportunities for youth in the country.
