President of Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA), Dr. Joseph Obeng, says GUTA still stands against the implementation of the Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) system which is expected to commence next week.

This is contrary to statements by its Deputy General Secretary Emmanuel Opoku Acheampong that the Association has finally backed down on its opposition to the Cargo Tracking Note.

GUTA has for some months now been at war with government over the implementation of the CTN which is meant to streamline activities at the ports, maximize revenue and track importation of goods that come into the country.

According to GUTA and other Unions who oppse it, the CTN is a duplication of processes and slowed down their activities. But in a recent interview with a National daily however, Deputy General Secretary of GUTA Emmanuel Opoku Acheampong said the Association had decided to abide by the directive from the GRA and government.

This has angered the President of the Union who insists they still oppose the CTN.

Meanwhile, the Executive Secretary of Importers and Exporters Association of Ghana, Sampson Asaki says they feel stabbed in back by the comments of the Deputy General Secretary of GUTA.
