Summary of the proposed Action : Need for Action
The Ghanaian manafacturing sector is currently facing serious difficulties due to unfair competition from imported products, partly due to WTO free trade regulations. Three keys sectors which have suffered severaly by this development include the wood processing, the textile and garment and the food processing sectors. The project aims at developing strategies and advocating for their implementation to support the identified sectors and the industrial sector as a whole.
Proposed Solution
At the end of the day, we expect to see stronger industrial sector, particularly the targed sectors, which is capable of competing with imported products. This will be achieved by removal of consultraints facing the industries and implementing protection measures which do not contravene WTO regulations. The capacity of AGI, the staff and members in policy advocacy would have also improved considerably.
Implementation Plan
The action are; analysing WTO regulations, conducting research of the wood processing, textile and garments, and food processing sectors to identify constraints facing the sectors, organising seminars to discuss the results of the research findings, educating industries and advocating for proper implementation of procurement law, publishing results of the findings, and organising a workshop with parliamentarians and a lunch meeting with Government Executives.
