Commander of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) at the Tema Port, Dr. Okkoh Appiah, is warning against the continuous strike by the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders (GIFF). He said the action could lead to a possible diversion of goods from the Port of Tema to neighbouring Countries.
He was advising members of the GIFF on the need to use appropriate mechanisms at the ports to solve the misunderstanding between some aggrieved business operators and the Ghana Revenue Authority over the implementation of the Cargo Tracking Notes system. Freight Forwarders at the ports have begun an action Monday morning to press on their demand for the government to withdraw the implementation of the CTN policy.
At an emergency meeting, Dr. Okkoh Appiah fears the continue action may lead to Ghana losing its Businesses to neighbouring Countries. "We have been observing and think as Industry players, we have the responsibility to make the Industry strong without being collapsed. Let us use a crisis-solving mechanism to end the action because many businesses are looking up to us” he said.
