This conference was aimed at policy makers, government officials, business managers, analysts, service providers, representatives of international cooperation agencies working in the field of Trade Facilitation, traders, academia and experts in trade and e- Business.
Following Ghana’s ratification of the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) and the coming into force of the Agreement, active work is ongoing by all relevant stakeholders to ensure the successful execution of the TFA Articles.
Ghana is making good progress in strengthening our competitiveness in international trade and we are particularly focusing on enhancing our trade facilitation regime to make trade easier, faster and less costly for our business community. Government of Ghana launched the Ghana National Single Window (GNSW) Programme last year, and this all-of-government approach to trade procedures simplification and automation has proven very effective.
