The Ghanaian Times says cargo tracking is increasingly becoming a norm in international trade to ensure port security and safety. It says according to the Ghana Revenue Authority introduction of the Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) would in addition to plugging loopholes and leakages, preserve the sanctity and integrity of the customs valuation process. The paper therefore calls on stakeholders to dialogue to find common ground to enhance business in the country.
The Daily Graphic is full of praise for Germany for its assistance to Ghana as well as bi-lateral relations between the two countries. It recalls the levels at which these relations have taken place and says as a nation, Ghana should use the visit of chancellor Angela Markel to take stock of its economic activities. The paper notes that though Ghana received commendation for her democratic credentials, the chancellor was worried about the perceived level of corruption in the country. The Graphic concludes by calling on both countries to improve on their relations and increase trade.
The Mirror calls for close collaboration amongst pharmaceutical companies, government, international organisations and supervisory agencies to check the prevalence of counterfeit and unlicensed drugs. It notes that all manner of drugs are sold in appropriate places and patronised by people without due regard to their efficacy or authenticity. The paper says the adverse effects of these drugs could be hidden in public health statistics. It therefore urges Ghanaians to stop patronising such unwholesome products which could have serious health implications for the country.
