The 2010 Budget Statement and Economic Policy was read on 18 November 2009. Proposed measures likely to influence trade are:
i) Rationalization of import duty on imported textiles and poultry products to check dumping of these goods on the Ghanaian market.
ii) Increase in royalty payment to 6% as an initial step in re-engaging all mining companies to review the mining industry fiscal regime.
