Ghana is scheduled to start exporting cassava chips to China after the signing of an agreement between the two countries.
Under the agreement, more than one million metric tons of cassava chips would be exported to china in the next five years.
The Ayensu Cassava Farmers Association (ACFA) has praised the government of Ghana for move.
The chairman of the Association, Mr George Dodd said the initiative will motivate Ghanaian cassava growers to increase their produce for export.
According to Mr Dodd, the ACFA will encourage its members to liaise with the Ministry of Food and Agriculture to expand their farms and increase production.
He said the Association will buy cassava chips from all the ten regions in the country at affordable prices for export.
