Ghana is looking to improve local poultry production by taking steps to limit poultry imports, according to reports.


The country's government is working on tariff and non-tariff measures to restrict the importation of poultry products, said Tia Alfred Sugri, deputy agriculture minister in charge of livestock. Discussions are currently underway on how to best implement the new measures. In addition, the government will expand coverage of its Export Development and Investment Fund to cater to the needs of farmers, as well as continue providing fertilizer and cereals subsidies.
