The GRA in collaboration with the Kingdom of Netherlands and the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration organized the programme. Addressing the closing session, the GRA Commissioner-General, Mr. George Blankson, congratulated the trainees for embracing the opportunity to acquire new valuation and classification skills and urged them to effectively use the knowledge acquired for the tasks ahead of them. He said the sustainability of Ghana’s development efforts depends on the ability of the GRA to collect enough revenue for the government to invest in strategic areas of the economy. “If these developments are to be sustained, the GRA must maintain its roles by ensuring that revenue flows into government chess adequately to fund the development of the country”, Mr Blankson said He noted that one major challenge of GRA is how to strike the right balance between revenue mobilization and tax reforms and stressed the need to continue with the reform efforts of the Ghana tax system which started in 2010. Mr Blankson also lauded the collaboration and partnership with the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration which he described as having the potential of quickening the modernization process. “Valuation and Classification are major determinants of the amount of revenue we can collect on imports. Having gone through this capacity training programme, I hope productivity will be visible and lead to an improvement in the efficiency of the officers”, he said.

Queensland International School honors JHS Graduates

Queensland International School honors JHS Graduates By Benjamin Xornam Glover, TEMA A sanitation expert Mr Harold Esseku has cautioned parents and students against patronising road side food, saying they are at risk of food borne diseases. Speaking at a graduation and thanksgiving and ceremony for the 2014 Year Group of Basic Education Certificate Examination(BECE) graduates of Queensland International School(QIS) at Sakumono, he indicated that the food sold by the roadside may not be properly prepared, properly served and stored and may not be in a hygienic environment and they attract several diseases. Mr Esseku,who was part of a recent survey carried out said some quantities of plantain chips, a delicacy were picked from a number of bus stops around the city of Accra sent to the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR) for a test. He said after the analysis was done, it came out that every single one of them indicated the presence of fecal coliform, a bacteria that could cause typhoid, dysentery, and cholera among other diseases were found on them. He said because the hawkers lack of toilet facilities, they ease themselves in the nearest bush and without washing their hands, they return to their wares which is later sold to the public who end up ingesting the food contaminated with bacteria. Mr Esseku therefore called on parents and students to be cautions and desist from patronizing such food vendors. A total of 104 Junior High School (JHS) graduates, who have successfully completed their basic education at the school were presented with certificates and textbooks at the ceremony to guide them at the SHS level.

The minister said notwithstanding the short-term challenges of dealing with the twin evils of fiscal and budget deficits, the economic prospects of the country remained brighter for the future. Mr Iddrisu said this on behalf of the President at the inauguration of a bottling plant for the production of internationally recognised Cider brands of Hunters and Savanna, as well as Knights Whisky range of alcoholic beverages at Tema. The GH¢16 million facility is a partnership between the Distell Group, a South African-based global player in the alcoholic beverage market with an annual turnover of GH¢5 billion, and Finatrade, a leading West African agri-commodities and branded foods company which has well-established distribution strengths in Ghana and on surrounding markets. Mr Iddrisu lauded the partnership between Distell Group and Finatrade, calling on them to identify a locally related agricultural commodity that could be used for the production of the beverages in order to benefit from some tax exemption incentives. “Having attained low middle-income status, it is the expectation of the government to transit into an upper-income economy and this can only be achieved with viable interventions such as this,” he said. Goods from the ports He said the ministry was working to ensure that the laws governing the flow of goods from the ports to customs-bounded warehouses were reviewed and made possible for the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) to work 24 hours to enhance efficiency, hinting that the process would come into force by January 1, 2015. The minister noted that the government was working closely with the Customs Division of the GRA to deal with smuggling, counterfeiting and pirating, with the aim of protecting local investments. He advised the management of the new venture to work closely with the Tema Traditional Authority and, if possible, give the Paramount Chief, Nii Adjei Krakue II, and his council a special dispensation in the recruitment processes in order to carry the council along and support the chief in his traditional governance process. The Chief Executive Officer of Distell Group Limited, Mr Richard Rushton, observed that Distell was combining its proven production and marketing expertise with the local marketing, sales and distribution knowledge of Finatrade to bring top quality products at competitive prices to Ghana. “Our partnership, will yield benefits way beyond the two investment parties. Already, we are creating jobs which will enhance the lives of many families and stimulate the local economy.” He lauded Ghana’s GDP growth, which he described as “a fine example for the entire African continent.” The Chairman of Finatrade, Mr Nabil Moukarzel, said the partnership with Distell was a good example of two African companies pooling their respective skills to promote trade. - See more at: http://graphic.com.gh/business/business-news/25150-finatrade-partners-distell-group-to-set-up-bottling-plant-in-tema.html#sthash.h7VtWU8r.dpuf

Port Training Institute to be set up at Tema

By Benjamin Glover | Tuesday, 24 June 2014 01:01 | Category: General News - See more at: http://graphic.com.gh/news/general-news/25848-port-training-institute-to-be-set-up-at-tema.html#sthash.jUmyJHyO.dpuf The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Ports Development Partnership (PDP), Africa-Netherlands, for the setting up of a Port Training Institute at the Tema Port. The institute will offer practical training and certification to seafarers and other related jobs at the port. It will also provide students with in-depth training on the requisite skills needed to work efficiently and to handle pressing maritime situations. MoU The Director General at the GPHA, Mr Richard Anamoo, initialled on behalf of the GPHA, while Mr Sunder Wubbolts, a Senior Project Manager of STC-B.V, a Dutch institution that specialises in training, technical assistance and research for the maritime and transport related industries in The Netherlands, who are also members of the Port Development Partnership, signed for the Dutch partners. Other collaborators include Deltares, an independent knowledge institute on water, subsurface and infrastructure and UNESCO-IHE, an institute for water education. The MoU was witnessed by the Board Chairman of GPHA, Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, and the Dutch Minister for Trade and Development Co-operation, Lilliane Ploumen. The PDP is a unique collaboration between 18 Dutch public and private business partners and the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in Accra, working together with local and regional stakeholders in achieving sustainable and long-term development for Africa’s main ports. Rationale The Director General at the GPHA, Mr Anamoo, explained that with the current expansion works of the Tema and Takoradi ports and a possible third port, there was the need to train more people on offshore operations and other maritime services, hence the establishment of the Port Training Institute. He said the institute would complement training offered by the other training establishments such as the Regional Maritime University to ensure that beneficiaries in the maritime sector were well- trained to promote efficient service delivery. Dutch Minister The Dutch Minister for Trade and Development Co-operation, Ms Ploumen, said The Netherlands was delighted to partner Ghana and the GPHA to expand the ports and logistics corridors to create an efficient transport hub. She expressed the hope that the project, when completed, would lead to knowledge transfer resulting in more efficient, safer, cost effective and sustainable port and terminal operations.

Rejuvenating the city of Tema

By Benjamin Glover | Saturday, 21 June 2014 08:39 | Category: features - See more at: http://graphic.com.gh/features/features/25660-rejuvenating-the-city-of-tema.html#sthash.CP2mRnIg.dpuf Rejuvenating the city of Tema By Benjamin Glover | Saturday, 21 June 2014 08:39 | Category: features 8 5 0 The Tema Settlement was planned and built using the neighbourhood concept of town planning. Under this scheme, the various communities were designed to have key amenities to make them self-sufficient and not become dependent on other communities. However, over a period of time and as a result of population growth and the growing numbers of commercial establishments in the city, the social infrastructure that is in place has become overstretched, a situation requiring that the city authorities either modernise and expand facilities or curtail the fast spread of existing commercial entities as a way to possibly rejuvenate the metropolis and contain the present demands of the residents. Sewage In fact, a major challenge facing residents of the metropolis concerns the occasional leakage of sewage into the various communities. The Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), Mr Isaac Ashia Odamtten, has said that the unfortunate situation emerged because of the indiscriminate erection of building structures on sceptic tanks, on ageing drainage systems, as well as the use of inappropriate materials for waste collection and their disposal in unauthorised places. He said the drainage systems, for instance, needed replacement. He said workers of waste management companies were occasionally deployed to the affected communities and suburbs to clean up the choked drains to allow waste water to flow freely through them. Clean Tema campaign At a recent public function at the Lorenz Wolf Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Mr Odamtten appealed to the clergy in Tema to use the pulpit to launch a crusade against the indiscriminate littering of the environment. He also called on them to partner the assembly to propagate the ‘Clean Tema’ agenda by advocating the need to keep the environment clean. He stressed that if everyone did the right thing by putting litter into appropriate litter bins, the TMA would make significant savings that could be used to improve on infrastructure such as schools, clinics and markets. According to Mr Odamtten, the determination to turn Tema into a clean metropolis was one of the eight thematic areas his administration was focusing on. Under the circumstances, residents are encouraged to clean gutters, streets and major market centres whenever the assembly organises clean-up exercises. The other seven areas of interest by the metropolitan assembly are on waste management, clean markets and lorry parks, security and safety, governance and social service, tourism and cultural exchange and infrastructure development. Street lighting The MCE disclosed that plans were also afoot to improve street lighting in the various communities and also install new ones for beautification of the environment and security. He was concerned that a large expanse of residential and commercial areas of the city were under darkness at night due to the lack of street lights. A number of residents have complained about the rising incidences of crime, including robbery, and have attributed the rise in the menace to the dark surroundings at night and for which criminals use to their advantage. Markets From initial designs of the metropolis, the city has a number of commercial centres spread across the city. They include markets for Tema Communities one, two, four, five, seven, eight, nine, Tema Mahean, fishing harbour, Sakumono and Texpo areas. Sad to say that although these markets appear to be vibrant, many of them are either congested or are suffering from weak structures. Following from this, a lot of pressure has been brought to bear on the central business area in Community One. The situation here is further compounded by vehicular traffic and congestion. The spill-over trading activities into the communities is evidenced in the proliferation of commercial shops and stores, many of them being wooden structures and disused shipping containers sited in unauthorised locations within the metropolis. The TMA plans to restructure and upgrade all commercial centres in the city, particularly in those communities lying on the boundaries of the metropolis. According to the TMA, an audit conducted on markets in the city revealed that they were either dormant because the place was not well-demarcated to attract customers or that the absence of an adjoining transport terminal served as a disincentive to the public. Construction of modern transport terminal The TMA has plans to construct a modern transport terminal for Tema. When completed, it is expected to address vehicular congestion at the Tema Community One main market and also bring to a minimum the chaotic situation that commuters face on a daily basis. The proposed project is earmarked to be constructed along the Site Two and Site 20 stretch of the Tema-Akosombo road. Reaction from residents Some residents in Tema, who spoke to the Daily Graphic, lauded the assembly for initiating the development projects but charged the assembly to back to their words with action and endeavour to make their aspirations a reality. They were of the opinion that the successful roll out of these plans, when well-executed, would result in a reduction in congestion and address the inadequacy of public transport space. “Many years gone past, Tema used to be a very beautiful city, but what do we see of Tema now? It is a far cry from its previous state. We have a lot to do and it is our collective responsibility as inhabitants to ensure that the city is restored to its former glory,” said a resident, Mr Daniel Abeiku Sam. A trader at the Community Nine market, Madam Akosua Oppong, bemoaned the deplorable state of the market and was optimistic that the new projects the assembly would be putting up would bring relief to the people. back to top - See more at: http://graphic.com.gh/features/features/25660-rejuvenating-the-city-of-tema.html#sthash.csMLBrXZ.dpuf
