Trading: Ghana Commodity Exchange launched

The Ghana Commodity Exchange (GCX) was launched at the end of June and will become fully operational in 2016. Based on warehouse receipts, the CGX will enable the standardisation of products, helping to market them whilst reducing losses. It will start with trading maize, rice, beans and groundnuts.

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is a joint international institution of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States and the European Union (EU). CTA operates under the framework of the Cotonou Agreement and is funded by the EU.
