The Ghana Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) have welcomed moves to set up a joint Ghana Togo border post.
The move is part of an initiative by ECOWAS to reduce the frustrations at the borders and facilitate trade between member states.
President John Mahama and his Togolese counterpart Faure Gnassigbe have inaugurated a joint Ghana Togo border post at Noefe in the Volta Region.
Speaking to Citi Business News 1st Vice President of the Ghana Chamber of Commerce and Industry Dr. Prosper Adabla said the same should be done for all the other countries that share a border with Ghana to enhance free movement of goods and service.
“Eliminate the border post and put a seamless border posts there so that we can go across more easily. But we hope that it will be for the Ghana- Burkina Faso and Ghana -Ivory Coast borders.”
He bemoaned the number of years it took the two countries to do this calling on ECOWAS leaders to ensure the closure or elimination of too many border posts.
