The Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) says it is not divided on political lines regarding its position on the implementation of the cargo tracking note policy by the Ghana Revenue Authority.
Addressing a press conference in Accra, the President of GUTA, Dr Joseph Obeng said all the executives of the trade union are united against the CTN implementation.
“We want to be emphatic here that our opposition to the CTN is infinite and therefore, any attempt by policy implementers to cunningly rope us into the CTN scheme in the future will be fiercely resisted,” he said.
The Ghana Revenue Authority on 15th October, 2018 begun the implementation of the CTN policy which it argued will ensure trade facilitation and increase government revenue.
But GUTA still maintains that its stance against the implementation of the policy remain resolute while urging its members to go about their duties without any fear.
“We hereby entreat all small and medium scale importers who have been duly exempted from the CTN to continue with their import processes without any fear and immediately report to us about any obstruction that may come their way for necessary assistance” He opined.
Dr Obeng also asked the GRA to exempt members of GUTA from three twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) per month quota introduced under the module.
The new quota, he said would lead to bureaucracies at the ports.
