Ghana's Cocoa Products Attract Chinese Interest At Hangzhou Expo

The Ghana's stand at the International Tea and Coffee Expo in Hangzhou, China was the toast of hundreds of Chinese, as they visited the stand to have a taste of the cocoa products on exhibition.

On the day set aside to honour Ghana, the Ghanaian stand was visited by the Chinese Minister for Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Mr Han Changfu and later by his Vice Dr Qu. Dongyu, a statement from Ghanaian officials copied the Ghanaian Times said.

The huge crowds were entertained by a Ghanaian dancing troupe accompanied by traditional music, much to the appreciation and amusement of the ministers and the teeming visitors, the statement said.

The organisers of the Expo confirmed Ghana's stand as, by far the most popular.

Dr Owusu Akoto Afriyie is in China with a 20-member delegation from Ghana to promote Ghanaian chocolate and other cocoa products to Chinese consumers.

The delegation includes a strong contingent from Cocoa Processing Company, Ghana Cocobod, private cocoa processor Plotte Limited from Takoradi, Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ministry of Trade and others.
