President Akufo-Addo has opined that Ghana’s local gin popularly referred to as ‘Akpeteshie’ can compete on the international level due to it pleasant packaging.
The President while delivering his inaugural speech in Parliament after being sworn in as the President of the Republic, indicated that the beautifully packaged Apio can compete on the international market.
“I doubt that anyone would, ordinarily, mention Akpeteshie, the local gin, as a possible item on the world market.
I cannot vouch for its taste or potency, since I gave up alcohol many years ago, but I can say that the Made-in-Ghana and beautifully packaged ‘Apio’, I have recently seen, can compete in the most sophisticated markets in the world”. He stated.
