Ghana Commodity Exchange welcomes UGBS students


As part of its drive to promote and structure the agricultural sector in Ghana, the Ghana Commodity Exchange hosted some students from the University of Ghana Business School and took them on a tour of the GCX offices.

The presentation was led by the CEO of the Exchange, Dr Kadri Alfah, who engaged the students on how the Exchange is structured and the aim of GCX to promote structured commodity trading in the country.

He also took some questions from the students who enquired about the role the Ghana Commodity Exchange plays in the commodity value chain as well as how the Exchange plans to fulfil its mission and vision while remaining a profitable organisation. Dr Alfah answered these questions by explaining that the Exchange had a focus on developing agricultural value chains in Ghana and aimed to charge farmers only for the rendering of services that improve grading quality such as cleaning and drying at minimal costs which are competitive with prevailing market rates.
