The government of China has invited the government of Ghana as a guest country for its 3rd China International Tea Expo, which starts from 12 – 18 May 2019 in Hangzhou in the Zhejiang Province.

Ghana is the first and the only African country to be given such recognition since the inception of the expo, which is an agricultural expo organised by China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs to showcase agriculture products to the global community.

It also seeks to share successful experiences of promoting rural development, environmental protection and income growth of farmers through developing tea and coffee industries and exploring effective pathways of industrial development.

The theme for this year’s expo is: ‘Promoting Shared Growth Through the Development of the Tea Industry’.

Ghana’s Minister of Food and Agriculture, Dr Owusu Afriyie-Akoto, will be leading Ghana’s official delegation to the expo.

Expressing his gratitude to the Chinese government, particularly his Chinese counterpart, Mr Han Changfu for the gesture, Dr Afriyie-Akoto said Ghana’s offer comes as a golden opportunity to gauge the appetite of the Chinese market of about 1.3 billion people with its cocoa products.

Mr Edward Boateng, Ghana’s Ambassador to China, said the offer comes to complement the mission’s relentless effort of promoting Ghana’s economic diplomacy at all spheres of its engagement in China.
