adb to support agribusinesses and farmers to mitigate COVID-19 impact


Managing Director of adb Bank, Dr. John Kofi Mensah, has announced that the bank will by the end of this week announce a support package for agribusinesses and farmers in the country due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He says players in the agriculture sector are a critical component of the bank’s operations, hence the need to provide some assistance to lessen the burden on agribusinesses.

Dr. Kofi Mensah said adb as a specialized bank will need to focus on the agric sector to protect farmers in times of hardship.

“Soon you will hear also some comprehensive packages to our agribusiness sector and our farmers in the rural areas as well. I urge citizens to follow the health protocols as outlined including frequent washing of hand with soap under running water, use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, properly disposing off tissues after use and also ensuring the social distancing protocol,” he said.
