Ghana is the 131st largest importer of Cassava in the world according to the Observatory of Economic Complexity (OEC).

According to available data, cassava is the 1027th most imported product by Ghana.

In 2019, Ghana imported US$32.4million worth of cassava.

Cassava is an important staple in the country for some of the country’s most popular food dishes, this means the country is depending on other countries to feed itself.

According to the OEC data, Ghana primarily imports cassava from Egypt, China, Belgium, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

In 2019, the country imported US$14.5MILLION WORTH OF CASSAVA FROM Egypt; US$8.79million from China, US$7.25million from Belgium and US$683,000 and US$558000 from the UK and the Netherlands respectively.

 

 

 

The data would be counter-evidence to the claim by the government that its Planting for Food and Jobs program (PFJ) is resulting in the stoppage of food importation into the country.

OEC World is the world’s leading data visualization tool for international trade data.
