The Ghana International Trade and Finance Conference, a reputed private sector initiative, will embark on a research survey primarily to assess the knowledge that the Ghanaian private and government sectors have on AfCFTA and Accra’s declaration as the Commercial Capital of Africa.

This survey would take place in selected regional capitals namely; Greater Accra, Greater Kumasi, Takoradi, Tamale, and Koforidua.

The survey is expected to generate a diagnostic report on the readiness of the private and government sector towards the implementation of the AfCFTA.

A two-page survey questionnaire has been carefully vetted to aid in this exercise.

Over 6,000 Industries, Companies, and SMEs across the five selected regions in Ghana are being pursued to drive this initiative.

GITFiC implores the general public and the business community to cooperate with the field personnel in acquiring reliable information to help the government, local authorities, and private economic sectors to build a socio-economic development plan to improve intra African trade.
