The Ghana Trade International Commission will investigate a petition from the Aluworks Company Limited before the Commission on unfair trade activities and dumping of aluminium products into the country. GTIC Chairman Mr Nana Adu Gyamfi, the Chairman of the Commission at a hearing session of the petition said the Commission would review all the petition and response before them and come out with a ruling on the matter.

Aluworks MD Mr Kwasi Okoh in a petition before the Commission said goods were being illegitimately imported into the country by various means without due processes. He said “Sunda International Limited and Yai Tin International Limited as among the exporting companies. The products are made cheap because of the export rebates granted by the exporting country which affect the local market. The process had made the goods cheap through deliberate mis-description on import documents and misapplication of relevant tariff codes. All efforts to equalize the playing field yielded no results and the market share has been severely disrupted and damaged.”

Mr Okoh stated that the phenomenon had led to significant lowering of the company’s market share, adding that the company produced and sold over 15,800 tonnes of aluminium in 2006 but could now produce 3,800 tonnes in 2018.

The company is demanding a playing field were appropriate countervailing measures are put in place to equalize the effect of the export rebates provided by the exporting countries.
