Ghana will host the 2019 African Green Revolution Forum(AGRF) in Accra from September 3rd to 6th 2019 on the theme “Grow Digital: Leveraging Digital Transformation for Sustainable Food Systems in Africa”.
The forum will be attended by over 2000 participants including Heads of State, Ministers and Eminent personalities from all over the world.
The hosting of AGRF is very important to Ghana because of who and how the idea was birth. The founding Chairman of AGRF is our own son and former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan of blessed memory.
Coincidentally Sunday, August 18, 2019 marks exactly one year since Mr Kofi Annan departed from this earth.
It was Kofi Annan who insisted and brought AGRF to Africa.
Ghana was the first country to host the Forum and 9years later Ghana becomes the first country to host again.
Below is a video of Mr Foster Boateng of the Local Organising Committee explaining what the forum will discuss.
