At a time Nigerian Cocoa producers are battling for survival due to government’s near negligence of the sub sector, Ghana and Ivory Coast are set to jointly decide on the volume and timing of cocoa exports by August for the 2019/20 season.

According to the head of Ghana’s Cocobod, Joseph Boahen Aidoo, the move is to increase producer profits.
