Why participate?

The plastprintpack & agrofood West Africa Fair is the main international exhibition in Ghana, dedicated to the agro-industrial supply chain, where technologies for processing, packaging and packing of food, beverages, cosmetics, etc. are widely exhibited. At previous editions, there was repeated participation of official German and Dutch pavilions, among others.

Despite a two-year period marred by the pandemic, Ghana's economic growth forecast for 2022 is 5.8%, consolidating it as one of the largest economies in West Africa.

While on the one hand the country is committed to developing its hydrocarbon resource potential, on the other hand it aspires to make progress in other key sectors of the economy. At the manufacturing level, government programmes aim to stimulate balanced growth in the country, with incentive measures for peripheral areas.

The agricultural sector is of paramount importance in the country, both socially and economically. It absorbs around 1/3 of total employment and contributes 21% of GDP. In 2020, it was the most dynamic sector of the economy, with +7.4% growth. …

This is an opportunity for Italian companies that intend to promote and/or consolidate their presence in the area.

South Africa Pavilion

South Africa joins in with a Department of Agriculture Western Cape Pavilion of 19 exhibitors.

The Western Cape Department of Agriculture is responsible for the promotion of agriculture in all its rich diversity in the Western Cape. About 45% of South Africa’s agricultural exports move through the Western Cape and the value-added in the sector amounts to just less than R21 billion (US$ 1.2 billion) per annum.
