Ghana Free Zones Board (GFZB)



The Ghana Free Zones Board [GFZB] was established on 31st August, 1995 by an Act of Parliament to enable the establishment of free zones in Ghana for the promotion of economic development, to provide for the regulation of activities in free zones and for related purposes.

Ghana, a Commonwealth member country, has over the years made positive progress as a result of policy reforms, which have improved macroeconomic performance and created a business environment conducive to the reduction of the cost of operating a business. The Ghana Free Zones Programme has come therefore to represent an important tool for Government in promoting Ghana as an ideal investment destination.

The Ghana Free Zones Board, which is the Government agency responsible for the implementation of the programme, is achieving positive results. Its important and expected role requires the Board to be the channel through which the export-led development policy is achieved. In view of this, the Board has positioned itself to provide the needed infrastructure and efficient services to investors in the free zone.  Read More
