ICC Welcomes WTO Trade Agreement
Several stakeholders across the globe have also welcome the development with ICC Ghana Secretary General, Mr. Emmanuel Doni-Kwame saying that ICC Ghana with the support of AGI, World Trade Centre Accra, GUTA, Ship owners Association of Ghana, Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders, FAGE, Ghana Employers Association, Ghana Journalists Association, West Blue Consulting, Ghana Shippers Authority and the BUSAC Fund encouraged the Ministry of Trade and the Parliament of Ghana to ratify the Trade Facilitation Agreement. This goal was achieved in January when Ghana became the 104th member country to ratify the TFA.
The chief executive officer (CEO), West Blue Consulting and a member of ICC Ghana, Valentina Mintah said the Ghana National Single Window, a trade facilitation programme, plays a key role in the execution of the TFA with up to 15 Sub Articles covered by the programme.
According to her, with the entry into force of the TFA, we are confident of achieving a further reduction in time and cost of doing business in Ghana, whilst providing a level playing field for all trade participants.
