The UK government has said there will not be any disruptions to Ghanaian exports as it prepares to leave the European Union.

This follows the approval by the UK Parliament to finally exit the European Union come January 31.

There are still concerns among some Ghanaian exporters that their businesses may be affected because of the former trade agreements with the EU.

But in an interview, UK High Commissioner to Ghana Iain Walker said there is no cause for alarm.

“As we leave the European Union, we are looking at increasing our trading efforts with many countries around the world, in particular, our good friend Ghana. We want to deepen our relationship, broaden it in a way to grow trade”, said Mr Walker.

He added: “Ghana needs to, in the years ahead, export more processed goods; the UK is a great market for Ghana, it’s already one of the biggest markets for Ghana, so, our focus, through the UK-Ghana Business Council, has to be about: how do we drive investments that will create jobs, that will create products, that will be sold in the UK.”

The UK is expected to leave the European Union after the Queen rubber-stamps the Brexit Bill.
