Marcopolis presents the Ghana Report focused on investments, doing business, economy and other topics featuring interviews with key executives and government officials. The sectors under review are agriculture, banking, energy, industry, telecom, IT, real estate and more.
"The sector is down because of several factors. The main factor is the energy crisis but we also have to deal with exchange rates and there are other factors such as the quality of roads," explains Kofi A. Boateng, Managing Director of PSL Platinum Shipping & Logistics, a preferred logistics company in Africa.
"Strategically Ghana is placed close to landlocked areas like Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger and we used to have a lot of transit cargo through Tema which we then tracked up north. Because of the energy crisis and the high cost of fuel, transporting cargo is difficult."
