How can the Economic Partnership Agreement help Ghana's sustainable development?

In the current context of globalization and liberalization of trade, developing country economies, just like those of developed countries, are at a crossroads in their evolution.

To benefit from the increase of trade exchanges and ensure its integration in the global market, West Africa needs to improve its production and competitiveness. To this end, the economies of the region and its member states should no longer be dependent exclusively on exporting commodities, such as oil, cocoa, wood or bananas, but begin to export processed products, with  more added value created locally, as well as develop the service activities characteristic of modern economies.

These are precisely the challenges that the West Africa - EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) can help to address.
