TAGG URGES GOVERNMENT NOT TO PUT INCOMPETENT CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICERS IN VARIOUS INSTITUTION WHEREBY THEIR INCOMPETENCE TRIGGERS NEEDLESS INCREMENT ON TRADE TRANSACTIONS.
According to the Ghana Shippers Authority Act 2012(LI 2190), Regulation 5. Which States on the Negotiation of charges. Looking at all angles from the traders’ front, it can be emphatically said that the Ghana Shippers Authority (GSA) are not doing much as it claims to help make trade facilitations in Ghana comfortable.
This is because, the Ghana Shippers Authority (GSA) have made it a point not to intercede on behalf of traders when it comes to negotiations between these multinationals shipping lines but rather have cosmetically painted a picture every year for traders to feel the sense of an ongoing activity with these various institutions whenever they deem it fit to impose incremental charges on the Ghanaian trader from these multinationals shipping lines, disregarding the fact that traders in Ghana pay more port charges than any other West African country.
With this regard, we seek to ask these harmless questions.
- Are these institutions helping multinationals shipping lines or companies to extort monies from traders illegally? Or making it seem legal to shot trading down in Ghana?
- Is the Ghana Shippers Authority (GSA) leadership competent and capable enough when it comes to trade facilitations in the country?
- Are traders being used in this country as ATM’s to pay unconscious charges without seeking for their views but rather making it as if the bureaucrat knows it all than the trader?
We are by this release asking the Ghana Shippers Authority (GSA) to make trade facilitations in Ghana comfortable and an all-inclusive stakeholders’ point of view to help move trade activities in the country.
