The Ghana Export Trade Information Centre was established in November 2005 to provide trade information and referral services to the business community, particularly, the exporter community. It began operation as one of the seven Reference Centres and National Enquiry Points set up under a Joint Integrated Assistance Programme(JITAP) and jointly implemented by the International Trade Centre (ITC), United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO). It has been provided with tools for the business community to access and use trade information to make strategic decisions. The tools include an interactive website for business information and communication with clients and a strategically-located venue equipped with internet-connected computers for clients. It has also become an ideal location for trade conferences and workshops.
