Ghana signs coffee deal.

ACCRA -- Ghana's High Commissioner to the UK and Ireland, Annan Cato, has signed the 2007 International Coffee Agreement on behalf of the government at the London headquarters of the International Coffee Organization. Witnessing the signing ceremony was Jose Dauster Sette, head of operations of the ICO and Edem Amegashie-Duvon, London manager of Cocoa Marketing Company.

The new International Coffee Agreement, which was adopted by a resolution of the International Coffee Council on September 28, 2007 at its 98th session in London was submitted to the Ghana Cocoa Board as a designated contact for government for submission to Cabinet and Parliament for study and ratification, a statement from the Ghana High Commission in London said.

Ghana first acceded to the International Coffee Agreement on September 9th 1964 and has been a signatory to all the agreements with Ghana Cocoa Board as the implementing agency for the government. The statement said coffee exports in Ghana reached their highest level in 1997/1998 with an export of 10,000 metric tons. Since then, there has been a gradual decline in exports due to the slump in world market prices, poor pricing policy and lack of Government support.
