Exports & Imports: Ghana To Get A Third Port

Exports & Imports: Ghana To Get A Third Port

From Peace FM

A third commercial port is to be built in the country to boost maritime trade,  Richard Anamoo, Director-General of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) announced in Takoradi.

He however, did not indicate where the port would be built, but asked Ghanaians to support any good investment to promote the socio-economic growth of the nation.

The first port was built in Takorad, and the second in Tema in 1962.

The Director-General was speaking at a forum held by the GPHA to brief stakeholders on the progress of work on the on-going expansion project at the Takoradi harbour which started in December last year.

The stakeholders included traditional authorities, Members of Parliament, assembly members and the community members.

He noted that the limited space at the Takoradi port cannot handle the increasing traffic demand in recent maritime trade, therefore it has become necessary to re-develop and transform it to meet the modern trends in the maritime industry to boost trade in the sub-region.
