Chief Executive Officer of GEPA, Akua Asabea Asare addressing the media called on Ghanaians to pay attention to coconut as a cash crop with several benefits as well as an avenue for job creation.
She said the economic benefits of coconut cultivation cannot be overemphasized, as Ghana stands to gain significantly in terms of foreign exchange from the export of assorted products to other countries.
“This festival will be the first of its kind in Africa and it will attract a lot of visitors to Ghana.”
“GEPA will use the platform to expound the importance of the export of coconut, and we hope to get the attention of others to come on board.”
