The Association of Ghana Industry (AGI) has begun profiling its members to leverage the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA).
According to its Regional Chairman, Tsonam Akpeloo, the agreement presents enormous benefits to businesses, hence the need to take advantage of AfCFTA and trade competitively, both internally and externally.
Speaking to Joy Business on the sidelines of the Regional Workshop and Annual General Meeting, Greater Accra Regional Branch, Regional Chairman of AGI, Tsonam Akpeloo called for a deliberate effort in ensuring the consumption of locally produced items.
“You realise that the issue of the African Continental Free Trade Area is here and it’s real because you’ll see companies from Kenya who are doing business in Ghana under the agreement. It is important for our members to also begin to package themselves in order that they can trade under the AfCFTA”.
He added that the move is to authenticate its members wanting to trade under the agreement.
“What we are doing is that we have created a portal ‘Kadodo Africa’. We profiling Ghanaian businesses that are interested in trading under the AfCFTA”.
“It is also to note that there are a lot of fraudsters these days that have taken over the internet. So it is important for us to authenticate the businesses that are willing to do business online.”
To him, AGI stands for credibility and will never compromise credibility”.
