Ghana government to increase import duties on transformers

The ECOWAS REGIONAL COMMON EXTERNAL TARIFF has come into effect from the 1st of February, 2016.

Approved by the Ghanaian government, this new act will increase the import duties for electric transformers and energy equipment destined to the Ghanaian market of a +5%.

The intention of the government is to encourage ghanese buyers to buy local and to promote the local manufacture of transformers and electric equipment.

In this optic, Westrafo proved to be a forerunner of the times, investing in Westrafo Ghana Ltd to produce transformers directly in West Africa promoting and helping the economy of the country and choosing its workers among the ghanese citizens.

Our choice is now paying off: our products have design and quality at european levels but are now manufactured in Ghana.
