The Tree Crops Development Authority (TCDA), under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, is set to launch a Five-Year Strategic and Implementation Plan geared towards the development of a competitive and sustainable tree crops industry in Ghana.
The launch of the Five-Year Strategy and Implementation Plan (2022-2027) will serve as a major step towards the establishment of an investment framework to guide the mobilization of both public and private investments for the development of a competitive and sustainable tree crops industry in Ghana.
The Authority has a mandate to regulate and create a conducive environment for the development of tree and industrial crops such as cashew, oil palm, rubber, shea, coconut and mango.
The Minister for Food and Agriculture, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, will be the Special Guest of Honour at the programme scheduled to take place at the Labadi Beach Hotel, Accra on 27th July, 2022.
During the inauguration in September 2020 by the President, the Authority was described as one of the major steps by the government to diversify the country’s agricultural export portfolio through the creation of a robust cash crop sector.
