The National Food and Agriculture Show (FAGRO) in partnership with Ghana?s Embassy in Israel and the Israeli Export and International Cooperation Institute will hold the 1st FAGRO-Israeli Investment Meeting in the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv.

The 5-day investment meeting scheduled for May 18th ? 23rd, 2013, will focus on B2B meetings between Ghanaian and Israeli companies, seminars on modern trends in agriculture, field-trips and farm tours, and how Ghana?s delegation of agric stakeholders and farmers can explore investment opportunities in Israel and vice versa.

FAGRO Exhibition Director, Alberta Nana Akyaa Akosa, said FAGRO is expecting agricultural stakeholders and farmers from the fisheries, input, poultry and fruit sub-sectors among others to register with FAGRO to be part of the Ghana delegation.

?In the last quarter of this year, FAGRO has done serious deliberations on the direction and future of Ghana?s agriculture at various international platforms and seminars in USA and Brazil.

?Our role at FAGRO is to create opportunities and facilitate the transformation of agriculture in this country through various international trade exhibitions, business platforms and fairs.?

She explained that the FAGRO-Israeli investment meeting will prove to be a productive and fruitful terrain for agro-business ventures to form strategic alliances and new partnerships.

Israel is a world-leader in agricultural research and development, and this has led to dramatic increases in the quantity and quality of the country’s crops. The drive to increase yields and crop-quality has led to the development of new seed and plant varieties.

The FAGRO-Israeli investment meeting will therefore afford Ghanaian farmers an opportunity to tap the rich expertise of Israel for accelerated agricultural growth and productivity.
