African Development Bank President Akinwumi Adesina’s take on the landmark signing

African Development Bank, Credit Suisse, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and Ghana Cocoa Board ink $600 million loan agreement to boost cocoa product
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, November 13, 2019/ — This is a phenomenal event, the result of hard work of everybody to make this happen.

I want to thank the leadership of President Nana Akufo-Addo for making sure that his country and Africa can get to the top of the value chain in processing cocoa into a wide range of chocolates, among others.

When you see a situation in which Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire account for roughly 65% of global supply of cocoa beans and Africa accounts for 75% of all that, but only accounts for 2% of the $120billion chocolate market, something is wrong.

This is a great day, and this is what the Africa Investment Forum is slated for: to make big things happen for Africa. 

Ghana is bankable. Cocoa is bankable, and of course, Africa is bankable.
