The African Centre for Economic Transformation (ACET) said Africa’s agricultural sector can drive economic transformation on the continent if the challenges in the sector are properly addressed.
Dr. Yaw Ansu, Chief Economist at ACET, speaking on: “The Importance of Agriculture in Economic Transformation,” said if Africa can better impact the lives of its people, it could increase productivity in agriculture.
He said increased productivity in agriculture, could positively impact on the lives of Africans.
He noted that other economies, such as those in East Asia, had transformed their economies mostly based on light manufacturing in a period when the United States and Europe were more receptive to exports. See more
