Project Update: Horticulture Business Platform (HBP) Stakeholder Meeting in Kumasi


Project Update: Horticulture Business Platform (HBP) Stakeholder Meeting in Kumasi

On Tuesday, the 27th June 2023, the Second Stakeholder Meeting was held at the Lancaster Hotel in Kumasi, marking a significant step forward in the formation of the Horticulture Business Platform (HBP).
The HBP is an integral part of the Private Sector Development (PSD) project, a substantial initiative supported by the Netherlands Embassy and administered by GNBCC. To shed more light on the HBP, we have a staff feature by Barnabas K. Apom, who speaks about the platform's vision and goals. You can find the feature linked here

The primary aim of the HBP is to create a vibrant community that brings together all stakeholders in the horticulture sector. This inclusive platform serves as a hub for networking, information sharing, and fostering business collaborations.
The meeting was moderated by Barnabas K. Apom, the Project Manager of HBP at GNBCC. The event commenced with a warm welcome address by Tjalling Yme Wiarda, the General Manager of GNBCC.
Bram E. van Opijnen, the First Secretary and Policy Advisor of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ghana, delivered an enlightening speech on the embassy's vision and the background behind the formation of the HBP.
Catherine Krobo Edusei Benson, the Chairwoman of HBP, and Anthony Tamakloe, the vice Chairman, provided valuable insights into the HBP's activities thus far and emphasized the importance of organizations joining the platform.

In addition, we were privileged to have informative presentations from two esteemed organizations. Deodatus Temu presented on behalf of East-West Seed, while Stephen Prah showcased the initiatives of Holland Greentech. Both presentations highlighted ongoing projects within their respective organizations as well as how the HBP can contribute to the overall growth of the horticulture sector.

We express our gratitude to all the speakers and guests who attended this event, as your presence and contributions greatly contributed to its success. We are happy to announce that the next two sensitization workshops will take place in Ho in the Volta Region, and Tamale, in the Northern Region.
