kwaku Kwarteng the Deputy ministser has concluded that the paperless port system introduced by the president cannot be scrapped.
although the system has had issues by freight forwarders and clearing agents but this aims at benefiting for all therefore stakeholders must all embrace it .
the freight fowrdwarders insist that rather than the system to serve as a fast track process at the port it does other wise.
Before the introduction of the system, the freight forwarders had protested its implementation, saying it will disrupt their processes.
However, Mr. Kwarteng, speaking in an interview with Accra 100.5FM’s Chief Jerry Forson on Friday, September 8, said: “The paperless system will help the entire country in the long term and so the government will not reverse that paperless policy, the implementation will be continued.
“Of course at the initial stages there will be some problems and issues with it but as it goes on you will realize that the people will become acquainted with it and accept it.
“Because it is a new policy, people will certainly throw out issues at it but as we move on those issues will be addressed. We have taken steps to deal with some of the issues that have come up.”
