Government is working to get parliamentary approval for the finalised draft of the Ghana Seed Regulations, Mr Seth Osei Akoto, the Director of Crop Services Directorate of the Ministry of Food Agriculture, has said.

Speaking on behalf of the Minister of Food and Agriculture at the 2018 National Seed Value Chain Business Networking Forum, Mr Akoto said government had also concluded consultations on other seed sector legislation and strategies, including the implementation of the National Seed Plan.

The forum was on the theme: “Vibrant Local Seed Industry: Strengthening Seed Value Chain Linkages through Public-Private Dialogue.”

The event aimed to contribute to shaping and improving the policy, regulatory and investment environment for enhanced private seed business through sustained public-private dialogue.

It was expected to foster stronger business linkages and networking among seed value chain actors.

Mr Akoto said there was no doubt that the coming into force of those instruments would go a long way to attract more private sector participation and investments in the seed value chain and make the local seed industry more profitable and competitive.

He said government had demonstrated its commitment to empowering the private sector through the active involvement of the National Seed Traders Association of Ghana (NASTAG) and other individual seed producers in the supply of the local seeds for the Planting for Food and Jobs implementation.
