Ghana - Market Entry StrategyGhana - Market Entry Strategy
For most Ghanaian business sectors, there are no laws requiring the retention of a local agent or distributor when exporting to Ghana. There has been a recent push for local content requirements in a number of industry sectors and legislation was passed in late 2013 to regulate local participation in the petroleum sector. In all sectors, the U.S. Commercial Service has observed that U.S. companies who retain an experienced agent or distributor (who has a thorough understanding of the local economy and shares the same expectations as their U.S. partners) are less likely to experience problems entering the market. The U.S. Commercial Service can assist with finding potential local partners.
