Title: Trade Centre - Kumasi
Authors: Arthur, Charles
Issue Date: 6-Jul-1997
Series/Report no.: 2361;
Abstract: Over the years Ghana’s export trade has relied heavily on a few traditional products of cocoa, gold and timber with dwindling export receipts. The need for diversification became apparent and this necessitated the setting up of the Ghana Export Promotion Council (GEPC) in 1969 as the main public organization for the development and promotion of nontraditional exports. To further boost export earnings the Economic Recovery Programme (ERP) was launched in 1983. As a result of policy reforms initiated under the ERP and the programmed activities of the GEPC since 1990 earnings from the non-traditional export sector which was a mere US$2m in 1983 rose significantly to IJS$119m in 1994. This figure still falls short of the targeted growth of 15% of total export receipts.
