Ghana and the United Kingdom signed a trade agreement worth $1.6 billion on Wednesday, in one of the latest bilateral deals since Britain exited the European Union.
The agreement will allow duty-free and quota-free access for Ghana to the UK market and preferential tariff reductions for UK exporters to the Ghanaian market, according to a statement on the UK government website dated in February.
It means Ghanian products such as bananas, tinned tuna, and cocoa can be traded to Britain without tariffs.
The Agreement will enter into effect following the completion of relevant internal procedures required in both Ghana and the UK.
