He told Dizengoff Ghana that government’s doors were open and was looking for stronger tractors that could be suitable for the Ghanaian terrain and “if you bring good tractors, we will be good partners”,
Dr Gyeile explained that farmers at Planting for Food and Jobs forum organised by the ADB Bank were looking for mechanization services and after sales services.
