South Africa High Commissioner receives FARA Executive Director

Accra, 4th July 2022

The Executive Director of the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) was today received at the South Africa High Commission in Accra Ghana by Her Excellency Grace Jeanet Mason, High Commission of the Republic of South Africa in Ghana.

The aim of the visit by the FARA delegation was to provide an update on the ‘State of Preparedness’ of the African Agribusiness and Science week scheduled to take place in June 2023 in Durban South Africa.

The event will also feature the engagement of the global bodies – Global Forum for Agricultural Research, Young Professional in Agricultural Research for Development, etc

It will be recalled that South Africa successfully played host to a series of FARA-led-led continent-wide events in the past. The forthcoming series of agribusiness fair and science week will initiate a new dispensation of the innovation-to-impact theory of change as an annual event spanning over the next five years in South Africa.

The support of the South African Convention Bureau and the South African High Commission is gratefully acknowledged.

From L-R Mr Thando Dalamba,(Deputy High Commissioner) H E Grace Jeanet Mason (High Commissioner), Dr Yemi Akinbamijo (Executive Director, FARA) and Mrs Vesta Nunoo (Grants and Compliance Manager, FARA) during the briefing session at the High Commission.
