Hundreds of Ghanaian exporters have expressed interest in trading with the UK if provided the needed support.

At the UK Ghana Export Forum organized by the UK Ghana Chamber of Commerce (UKGCC) in Accra, the exporters lamented the frequent changes in export laws and requirements.

They say the changes, coupled with inadequate funding hinders the expansion of their businesses to meet standards that allow them to compete with both local and international companies already dominating the UK market.

The objective of the forum was to educate Ghanaian businesses on the necessary export requirements. The forum emphasized the need for businesses to desist from cutting corners and comply with exportation principles and laws to enable them gain the trust of UK buyers.

In a panel discussion led by the General Manager of Blue Skies, Mrs. Ruth Agyei, Deputy Head of the Department for International Trade, Ms. Selasi Nukpe, Director of Marketing at the Ghana Export Promotion Authority, Mrs. Agnes Gifty Agyei-Sam, Head of Business Development, Ghana Exim Bank, Mr. Bright Darko and Regional Trade Policy Advisor of the Department for International Development, Mr. Quentin De Roquefeuil, participants were advised to be on top of the competition in their businesses by demonstrating commitment, and be socially accountable and environmentally responsible.

Participants were also briefed on the need to legally register their businesses through the appropriate organizations, and advised to explore partnership opportunities as a means of growing their businesses.

In his welcome address, the Operations Manager of the UKGCC, Mr. Derrick Cobbinah, mentioned that the forum was significant to the operations of its members as most of them desired to export their products to the UK.

He concluded that the chamber will continue to work towards bridging the trading gap between the two countries – Ghana and the UK.
