The Government of Ghana through the Ghana Port and Harbour Authority has initiated some major infrastructure upgrade and development of the Takoradi Port in order to allow the port to receive larger vessels, handle more cargo, increase storage capacity, reduce the cost of trade and therefore boost Ghana’s trade capacity within the region.
