USDA West Africa Trade Mission 2019
U.S. Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Stephen Censky led a trade mission to West Africa, October 28-31, to help United States exporters foster new opportunities in a region where strong economic growth is driving demand for American exports of food and farm products. The trade mission was based in Accra, Ghana, and included buyer delegations from Côte d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Nigeria, and Senegal.
On Tuesday, October 29, Deputy Secretary Censky led a roundtable discussion with University of Ghana representatives of the schools of veterinary medicine, agriculture, and animal science about the link between Ghanaian agriculture education and agriculture production. That evening, Deputy Secretary Censky met with the American Chamber of Commerce-Ghana (AMCHAM) to confer about the current business climate in Ghana, potential regional agricultural and export opportunities for U.S. products, and networked with AMCHAM members in the food and agricultural sector.
