Trade Policy

The main objective is to fast track trade development in Ghana through the adoption and implementation of national trade policies coherent with and geared towards boosting intra-African trade.
This involves setting a policy target for boosting Ghana’s share of intra-African Trade, e.g. “To triple Ghana’s share of intra-African trade from USD 4.1 billion annually to USD 12.3 billion by 2025”. The AfCFTA also requires re-aligning policies to ensure that intra-African trade is mainstreaming into national programmes; and to ensure that Ghana’s national trade policy is differentiated in such a way that no other African country would receive a less favorable treatment than is given to a non-African country.', '

  1. To incorporate AfCFTA rules and regulations into the laws of Ghana and implement AfCFTA obligations in Ghana.
  2. To develop and operationalise a mechanism for dialogue between government, private sector and civil society to enhance their roles in AfCFTA trade policy formulation and implementation.
  3. To apply import defence measures, competition policy and intellectual property rights to minimise loss caused by unfair trade practices, of trade opportunities available under the AfCFTA.
  4. 5. To apply dispute settlement procedures to ensure effective and adequate resolution of issues impeding access by Ghanaian exporters to other AfCFTA markets.
