GHANA has ambitions to be a maritime hub for the whole region – and a vital part of that policy is investment in the Port of Tema. At the same time, Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) is assuming a new role as a landlord port, with less operational and more regulatory responsibilities.
A key priority has been the privatisation of stevedoring. Today there are eight private stevedoring companies in the Port of Tema.
Many construction and development projects are under way to enable the port to cope with the ever growing quantity and range of cargoes passing over its quays.
