Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On 14 March 2013, the Minister of Trade and Industry (Mr. Iddrisu) announced regulations on the importation of textiles into Ghana by limiting the entry points for imports. Only three checkpoints remain open for cotton imports, namely: Kotoka Int. Airport and the ports of Tema and Takoradi.

Mr. Iddrisu stated that this measure would help to better control 'the growing menace of imported cotton into the country." He further explained'that this is an administrative initiative by his ministry not only to prevent inferior textiles from entering the country but to also encourage the local production of cotton.'
