TRADE WITH GHANA
Strategic Anchor Industries
The Government of Ghana intend to position Ghana’s industrial landscaping around certain industrial pattern and products. Therefore investment attraction into the Industrial Parks and Special Economic Zones (IP & SEZ) projects should be centered on strategic anchor industries such as Agro processing, Pharmaceutical industry, Integrated Aluminium Industry, Iron andSteel Industry, Auto mobile and Vehicle Assembly, Textiles, Garments and Apparel sector, Industrial Salt, Petrochemicals, Manufacturing of Machines and Machinery Components, Industrial Starch and Oil Palm Industry.
Private Sector Led Initiative
The project is expected to be private sector driven with the Government of Ghana through the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MOTI) with support of other investment promotion Agencies facilitating the process in the area of land acquisition, land registration, provision of the necessary infrastructure (soft and hard) such as water, electricity, fibre optic, roads, rail lines among others for the private sector to build and operate vibrant IPs or SEZs in the country. The Ministry therefore seeks partnership with potential investors to establish these industrial parks. A number of land banks have already been identified and the Ministry is liaising more with the various chiefs and Municipal and District Assemblies to identify and register these lands readily for the establishment of industrial parks. The Ministry has catalogued a list of existing industrial parks and land banks identified for the project.
