Ghana Maritime Sector Strengthens Integrity with Anti-Corruption Training

Last week was an important day for Ghana’s maritime sector! The Ghana Maritime Authority (GMA), the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN), and the Convention on Business Integrity (CBi) joined forces to train maritime agencies in Ghana on corruption risk assessment, professional ethics, and integrity. This four-day training was funded by the Danish Foreign Ministry’s development cooperation (Danida) and represents the first step towards strengthening transparency, integrity, and accountability at Ghana’s ports.

The training follows an agreed-upon aim among all maritime authorities in Ghana to develop Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), leading to the creation of a National Port Process Manual. It marks an important step towards a corruption-free maritime sector, ensuring efficient port operations and fostering a culture of transparency.
