Ghana signs coffee deal.
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.
