The Vice-President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Michel Mordasini, visited Ghana last week. He had the opportunity to meet with government officials including Fiifi Kwetey, Minister of Food and Agriculture and Seth Tekper, Minister of Finance, to discuss the country’s agricultural and rural development agenda and to confirm IFAD’s steady support to Ghana’s development efforts.

The visit gave Michel Mordasini and his team the opportunity to assess projects successfully executed by the two programmes. He met with authorities of the Savelugu Municipal Assembly and attended an exhibition at the forecourt of the Savelugu Municipal Assembly prepared by clients of the REP. He also visited a local soap processing group in Savelugu and the Kanvili Women’s Shea Centre.
