All foreigners dealing in the retail trade in Ghana are to halt from that sector by Friday July 27.
This was contained in a Public Notice issued by the Ministry of Trade and Industry on Wednesday asking all foreigners to move out of the retail market by the deadline.
According to the Notice, “A person who is not a citizen or an enterprise which is not wholly owned by a citizen shall not invest or participate in the sale of goods or provision of services in a market, petty trading or hawking or selling of goods in a stall at any place|”.
It further states “Notice is hereby given to all non-Ghanaians who are engaged in retail trading activities contrary to the GIPC Law 2013, (Act 865) section 27 (1)] to desist from doing so. All persons engaged in such practices are therefore advised to STOP to avoid legal actions being taken against them,” the Ministry’s Notice concluded.
