Tema, Aug. 4,GNA – The Ghana Community Network
Service Limited (GCNET) has held a stakeholder meeting to sensitize them on the
introduction of paperless transactions at the Tema Port.

Mr. Agyaaku Nkansa, Deputy Manager, Tema
branch of GCNET, in a PowerPoint Presentation on Thursday explained that his
outfit had set the platform and a conducive atmosphere for the paperless
transaction at the Port to fully commence.

Addressing stakeholders which included  clearing agents, custom officers and
officials of Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority(GPHA), he said, “Customers can
now transact business with GCNET and other officials of the Port from the comfort
of their homes and offices. They only need a reliable internet service,”
he said.

Mr. Nkansa schooled the stakeholders on the
various processes one had to go through to have their goods cleared from the
Seaport with regard to the paperless technology.

He noted that the project had been piloted at
the Takoradi Port and the experience would be replicated in Tema as soon as
possible adding that “GCNET had liaised with all the electronic banking and
payment platforms in the country hence customers should not be anxious when
they want to clear their goods.”

Deputy Commissioner of Operations, Customs
Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Mrs. Christina Akoto Bamfo,
asked the stakeholders to update themselves with current trends in technology
so that they could apply the knowledge in their transactions.

She said the paperless transaction would
improve revenue mobilization and minimize corruption at the seaports adding
that “national security and other security services will be fully engaged in
the examination processes at the port.”
