Borderless Alliance discusses strengthening regional agriculture value chains at 10th Conference


The Borderless Alliance has held its 10th Annual Conference on how to strengthen regional agriculture value chains to compete in a global market.

In attendance were various players in the trade, agriculture and logistics chain.

Speaking at the conference, Chief Executive Officer-Ghana Shippers Authority, Benonita Bismarck, said the Authority has introduced an electronic platform to receive and address the concerns of transporters on Ghana’s corridor.

President of Borderless Alliance, Jonas Lago, said they aim to promote a vision of agriculture without deforestation; intensive and competitive agricultural practices that respect the environment and which are able to reverse the trend of depending on food imports in West Africa

He said the aspiration of Borderless Alliance is to see a strong, integrated Africa free from all forms of trade barriers.

Coordinator-National AfCFTA Coordination Office in Ghana, Dr. Fareed Arthur, said investing in agriculture is not only economically prudent but also essential for Africa’s security and self-sufficiency. Africa, he noted, must also seize the opportunity presented by expanding regional agricultural markets, which are projected to reach US$1trillion by 2030.
