Deputy Minister of Finance Mona Qaurtey is confident Ghana will meet the 2025 target by the African Union Agenda 2063 which states that all members should move in to mechanised farming through the use of modern technology and tools.

According to the deputy minister who was speaking to Radio Ghana business news, the target is achievable as government is transforming the agriculture sector to meet international standard.

“As part of our Ghana shared goal agenda 2, which talks about the transformation agenda, we are looking at the modernization of agriculture, that means there should be the use of larger land and there should be use of mechanised tools not hoes and cutlasses.

So productivity can be improved and so that there can be economies of scale where the unit cost of production should go down, we should have production and better pricing, it is a target, 2025 we are not far from there we can meet it”
