Import revenue up by 3.9% …as paperless port boosts corruption ranking score

Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) data show that import revenue increased by 3.9 percent at the end of the 2018 calendar year.

The total import revenue increased from about GH¢12.7billion in 2017 to GH¢13,191.79million as at the end of 2018.

The growth in revenue realised from imports over the period can largely be attributed to implementation of the Paperless Port System at the country’s sea ports by government.

The Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Trade, GRA-Customs Division, WestBlue Consulting and GCNET, among other stakeholders, have been commended for their various roles played in increasing government’s revenue at the port and blocking revenue leakages.
