(Accra) – Ghana’s exports of cocoa to Dubai have grown over the years to reach AED 27 million in 2014, according to figures released during a roundtable discussion organised by Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry on the cocoa industry in Ghana and the synergies between the industry and Dubai’s private sector.
The event, held recently in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, was aimed at identifying how Dubai can play a role in being a global hub for Ghana to reach the Asian markets and the emirate’s attractiveness as a sound investment destination.
Cocoa represents 57% of Ghana’s export earnings and the country is the second largest producer of this crop after Cote d’ Ivoire, accounting for 34% of the global cocoa market.
Welcoming the participants to the roundtable and throwing light on the bilateral trade relations, Omar Khan, Director, International Offices, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said, “Ghana’s exports of cocoa to Dubai have grown over the years. The value of Dubai’s total cocoa imports from Ghana was AED 27 million in 2014, out of the AED 6 billion which represents Dubai’s non-oil trade with Ghana in 2014.”
