Turkey-Ghana Economic and Trade Relations

The economic ties between Turkey and Ghana have been stronger throughout time, particularly in the last ten years as Turkey's entire Africa strategy started to take form.

Turkish businesses have increased their trade and investment with Ghana, which will lead to record growth. Turkish businesses are now active in several important areas of our economy, including aviation, energy, construction, water production, and education, among others.

Turkish brands and products are increasingly making their way into Ghanaian markets. Analysts from both sides concur that given the capacity of the two nations, bilateral economic activity might be far higher.

Turkey: An Emerging Economy

Turkey is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, thanks to its youthful demographic profile. Some 27% of the Turkish population is younger than 15, compared with 17% in the UK and 13% in Germany.

With a burgeoning market of young customers eager to buy goods and services, there is huge potential in Turkey for key sectors such as banking, telecoms, autos, consumer durables and construction.

Legal Requirements to Import from Turkey

Customs and Documentation

In most cases, import from Turkey is treated as an intra-Community acquisition of goods. Therefore, it does not require extra customs charges.

The exporter and importer's transactions are documented or attested to by the commercial invoice. When the items are ready, the exporter sends the importer a commercial invoice to collect payment for the goods.

The commercial invoice, which always has to be submitted for customs clearance, comprises the essential details of the transaction.

It is comparable to a standard sales invoice, notwithstanding the addition of several pieces of information relevant to the export-import transaction. The following are the minimal data that are often included:

  • Information on the exporter and the importer (name and address)
  • Date of issue
  • Invoice number
  • Description of the goods (name, quality, etc.)
  • Unit of measure
  • Quantity of goods
  • Unit value
  • Total item value
  • Total invoice value and currency of payment. The equivalent amount must be indicated in a currency freely convertible to Euro or other legal tenders in the importing Member State
  • The terms of payment (method and date of payment, discounts, etc.)
  • The terms of delivery according to the appropriate Incoterm
  • Means of transport
