Core Tip: Ghana is hopeful that the ban on vegetables export to the European Union (EU) will be lifted before the end of this year.
Ghana is hopeful that the ban on vegetables export to the European Union (EU) will be lifted before the end of this year.

This is because, the Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA) says EU officials who completed another round of inspections last month attested to the progress being made.

Speaking to Business Finder, Erasmus Ashun, Director of Product Development of GEPA said “We were briefed after the EU officials’ checks and from all the indications they said Ghana has done well. There were seven non-compliance issues and so far Ghana has been able to comply with five out of the seven while two have been partially complied with.”

European Union officials were in Ghana from September 12 to 21, 2017 to carry out another inspection after Ghana failed to pass a similar test in March this year. Ghana is, however, optimistic the ban will be lifted this time around.

Ashun indicated that two non-compliance issued partly dealt with, revolve around administrative work and Ghana has since put in place the correct measures and evidence of that have been sent to the EU inspectors.

The ban on vegetables entering the EU market is to end in December and depending on how far Ghana has responded to the queries that were raised in the previous year the ban may either be continued or discontinued.
