Fresh yam has since November 20, 2002 been classified as a traditional export commodity for Ghana, the country’s Ministry of Trade and Industry has declared.


A notice to exporters and the general public by the sector minister, Dr Kofi Konadu Apraku says the use of the Ghana Export Form for export of non-traditional goods would no longer apply to yam export.

The notice said all yam exporters should therefore use the Bank of Ghana Exchange Control Form A.2.
