Ghana: President commissions greenhouse village in Ashanti Region

President Nana Akufo-Addo has commissioned the Akumadan Greenhouse Capacity Building and Commercial Centre in the Ashanti Region in Ghana.

Speaking at the commissioning ceremony on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, the President recounted that similar facilities have been established at Dwahenya in the Greater Accra Region and Bawjiase in the Central Region, in furtherance of the vision to revamp and modernize agriculture.

These facilities, he said, come under the Greenhouse module of the Planting For Food and Jobs (PFJ) programme, one of the five priorities of government.
