The Ministry of Trade and Industry has given a 27 July 2018 deadline to all non-Ghanaians in the retail industry, to stop their business or face legal action.

The Ministry, in a statement, said: “Notice is hereby given to all non-Ghanaians who are engaged in retail trading activities contrary to the provision of the Act [GIPC Law 2013] to desist from doing so. All persons engaged in such practices are, therefore, advised to stop to avoid legal actions being taken against them”.

It added that: “Offenders are entreated to move out of the markets by Friday, 27 July 2018.”

According to the laws of Ghana, the retail sector is reserved for Ghanaians.

Over the years, members of the Ghana Traders Union Association (GUTA) have had cause to worry over the influx of foreign nationals in the retail sector.
