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.', '
