The Ghana Commodity Exchange and Warehouse Receipt System Project

As part of efforts to create an orderly, transparent, and efficient marketing system for Ghana’s key agricultural commodities to promote agricultural investment and enhance productivity, which was one of the key objectives of the Ghana Trade Policy, the Government committed itself to the establishment of a Ghana Commodity Exchange (GCX) and associated Warehouse Receipt System (WRS) to encourage market access and fair returns for smallholder farmers, and to facilitate the formalization of informal agricultural trading activities. The commitment was made in the 2009 and 2010 budget statements respectively.
