We are united against CTN - GUTA

The Ghana Union of Trade Association (GUTA) says its opposition to the cargo tracking note (CTN) is indefinite, shaking off ongoing concerns by some people that the trade group is divided on political lines on the policy.

“We are not in anyway divided on party lines on the implementation of the CTN. All the executives of GUTA are united against its implementation,” the President of GUTA, Dr Joseph Obeng said in response to a question at a press conference on the CTN on Thursday October 18 in Accra.

“We want to be emphatic herein that our opposition to the CTN is infinite and, therefore, any attempt by policy implementers to cunningly rope us into the module scheme in the future will be fiercely resisted,” he said.

Dr Obeng also asked the implementers of the CTN to exempt members of GUTA from three twenty foot equivalent unit (TEU) per month quota introduced under the module.

The new quota , he said would lead to bureaucracies at the ports.
