CEO of West Blue Consulting, the IT Company  behind the implementation of  the single window,  Valentina Mintah, believes the  Single Window program will make Ghanaian  businesses more competitive in the global business space.

“ The next phase will reduce the time spent by importers and exporters in securing documentation. It would also increase the country’s global ranking in the Trading across Borders Report from the current position of 171 in 2016 to 121 by 2021.”

The project is expected to reduce the cost and time of international trade by 50% and 25% respectively over the next five years.
