Accra, Sept. 15, GNA – The Association of
Ghana Industries (AGI) has applauded the government’s decision to implement the
Cargo Tracking Notes (CTN) without any charges to the importer or shipper.

A statement signed by Dr Yaw Adu Gyamfi, its
President, said the “AGI will quickly like to see further consultation of all
relevant parties to find a workable solution to the impasse over the
implementation of the CTN”.

“The implementation of the CTN must be a
win-win situation for all stakeholders so that no party is unduly disadvantaged
to the detriment of their business operations.

It is our expectation that the stakeholder
consultations leading to the implementation of the CTN on the re-scheduled date
will enhance compliance.”

The opportunity created to allow for increased
stakeholder consultation was therefore in the right direction.

The statement said the association was not
going to endorse attempts to frustrate the roll out of reforms at the ports.

It added that port efficiency and the current
reforms constituted critical drivers for trade and economic growth.

The AGI was however eager to make sure that
doing business in Ghana using CTN did not unduly burdened them.

The statement said the Association was
concerned about the agitations following the announcement that the CTN was
coming into force effective September 2018.
