The event took place at the Miklin Hotel in Kumasi and was attended by key public and private stakeholders in Ghana, including representatives from the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Ghana Customs and Police, Shippers' councils from across the region, the National Road Safety Commission, banks and various transport companies and unions. The nature of the dialogue was good-hearted and the exchange of information was critical in highlighting the differing points of views and priorities, but everyone agreed that efforts should be made in order to reduce barriers to trade and transport and that it was a collective responsibility.
The Borderless Alliance was also present, as it promoted its advocacy campaign at the event, stressing on the importance and benefits of increasing private sector participation in increasing the effectiveness of its campaign.
