The Ghana Commodity Exchange Project team, as part of its preliminary public education and awareness creation drive, has met with the leadership and membership of the Kaneshie Maize Market Queens Association in Accra to share updates on the progress of work on the establishment of a national commodity exchange.
The interactive session which was part of the maiden meeting of the Maize Market Queens Association for 2016 afforded members the opportunity to know more about what the GCX is, what it seeks to do, how its work will positively impact on their activities and the value the operations of GCX bring to their activities.
It was also to solicit their feedback, input and concerns on how they perceived their activities would be impacted by the operations of GCX. The session was preceded by a presentation on the operation of the GCX when it becomes operational.
Some of the discussion points bordered on how the association could become a trading member, how members could buy or sell on the exchange through their association and how the operations of the GCX will improve their transactional fortunes through the orderly reliable and transparent market system that will address challenges of lack of market and access to credit among others.
Mr. Stephen Debre, Business Development Manager of the GCX Project, in his opening remarks assured the market queens that GCX Project team was committed to building a lasting partnership relationship to understand their concerns to inform the trading activities of the exchange when operational.
President of the Kaneshie Maize Market Queens Association, Madam Naomi Okine, commended the GCX Project team for the initiative to reach out to them to explain how the operations of the exchange would improve their activities.
