Rev. Dr Dawson-Ahmoah, who is also the Chairman of the Tema Branch of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), stated that the GCMA still maintained that the continued importation of bagged cement into the country was not necessary, stressing that with a current surplus capacity of over two million tonnes per annum, local manufacturing companies had the installed capacity to meet the local demand for cement. He expressed concern that the country was gradually becoming an import centre.
The Vice President of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), Dr. George Dawson-Ahmoah has asked government to make available the complete document of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) for critical review .
epa_agreement "We would like to have a complete document of the EPA agreement to review so we would have a positive understanding and be able to relate this to all our members," Dr. Dawson-Ahmoah said. Speaking at a consultative meeting with various stakeholders to iron out outstanding issues regarding the EPA, Dr . Dawson-Ahmoah noted that there are imminent dangers associated with the agreement. "There will be significant losses, it will affect revenue…….Ghana's lack of capacity will hinder it from tracking goods from the EU markets," he stated. He further stated that EPA will fragment the local market. He therefore stressed the need for the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to build on the integration of its own trade systems rather than depending on external systems such as the EU market. "When is ECOWAS going to wake up to come together, harmonise our system and break the bridges between Nigeria, Togo an the other ECOWAS countries?," he asked.
"This is a laudable idea that should be supported by all," the Vice-president of the AGI's large-scale sector, Dr George Dawson Ahmoah, told the Daily Graphic in an interview.
"We are wondering what additional standards the ministry is going to set since we already have a lot of these standards in place. The problem is not about the laws or standards, but it is about enforcement," he said. He, however, admitted that industries were not complying with all regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
