An expert in global trade development and facilitation from Switzerland, Tom Butterly has called on policymakers in Ghana to pay keen attention to trade facilitation to enhance administrative efficiency and attract investments.

He said trade facilitation could reduce costs and time of transacting business across borders and increase predictability.

Mr Butterly, who made this known recently at a trade facilitation workshop in Accra, said trade facilitation has become a key policy issue for governments and businesses, adding that it reduces delays at the border and makes public agencies dealing with trade efficient.

“In terms of focus, it's about simplifying and harmonizing formalities, procedures and the related exchange of information and documents between the various partners in the supply chain.

“A more efficient and transparent delivery of public services will allow the administration to maintain high security levels and effective government control, while diminishing opportunities for corruption,” he said.

Mr Butterly said traders will gain as a result of higher predictability, speed of operations and lower transaction costs, stating “For countries, including Ghana as a whole, reducing unnecessary delays and costs attracts investments and supports growth and job creation.”

Trade facilitation workshop
