How can economic relations between West African countries and Germany be improved? This was the central topic of a discussion round between Hanna Tetteh and the africrops! management team in Berlin.
Ms. Tetteh is currently residing in Berlin at the invitation of the Robert Bosch Academy and takes part in the Richard von Weizsäcker Fellowship programme. In Ghana, she worked as a lawyer and pursued a political career. In recent years, she served as a Minister for Economic Affairs and as Foreign Minister.
The lively discussion centred around the European Union’s free trade agreements with African countries – the so-called Economic Partnership Agreements – and possibilities for direct intervention of German Development Cooperation in the African private sector. Ms. Tetteh works on improving the local framework conditions so that more medium-sized German companies can enter the Ghanaian market and form partnerships with local companies and institutions.
Our guest was very impressed by the africrops! approach and would now like to encourage entrepreneurs in Ghana to grow Moringa in high quality, to then enter into a long-term business relationship with africrops!.
