The Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoe designated 5 days for his city to celebrate and demonstrate the good things that chocolate and cocoa have done for nature and mankind. The Ghanaian community In France was invited to defend the honour of our country on this major subject and product of ours. President Kuffour and the people of Ghana can rest assured. APAE and GHACIF did what was expected of Ghana. They took care of the Ghana stand whenever it was necessary.  

Mrs. Mary Amoako APAE President and a GHACIF executive (pictured below) was the leader of the chocolate action.
