South Korea has committed $6m to supporting agricultural co-ops in Ghana over the next four years.
The Korea International Cooperation Agency (Koica) and the ministries held consultations, and a memorandum of understanding was signed between the two governments in May.
Ghana and Korea are now establishing a joint implementation body, and a new cooperative bill is expected to be passed to provide an effective institutional framework.
The project will be implemented in the northern, upper east and upper west regions of Ghana on a pilot basis, with Korean project managers heading out in September to work with their local counterparts.
In July, a 14-member Ghanaian delegation visited Hansalim Cooperative Federation, a farmer-based co-operative south of Seoul, in preparation for the programme.
