His Excellency Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, the Chairman and CEO of DP World and Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zones Corporation, Dubai in his remarks said they are going to work to ensure the clearing of goods in record time in Ghana.

“We are utilizing a system that is used and developed in Dubai and are handling millions of documents every year.

“The system would be tailored made to suit the needs of Ghana, taking into consideration what gabs are there to fill and what additional things we need to do. 

“We believe that in this day and age technology is very important and systems and the best system to be employed is very important and so with that it is going to help cargo, trans-shipment; and it will help link people so that eventually every transaction will move very smoothly, reducing cost of the end users”, he said.
