Akwaaba, Let’s Achieve More Exports together.
The Ghana Free Zones Authority (GFZA) was established on 31st August, 1995.
— Welcome to Ghana Free Zones Authority
Where we are driven by economic diplomacy, which is in tandem with the President's vision for Industrialization, Job Creation, and Economic Growth. Established by an Act of Parliament, The Free Zone Act, 1995 (Act 504), we are focused on establishing free zones in Ghana to promote economic development.
Additionally, our mandate is to regulate activities within free zones and for related purposes. The Ghana Free Zones Authority is governed by a nine-member Board chaired by the Minister of Trade and Industry.

To attract investors into the Free Zones Scheme and to create a viable and sustainable business environment, the GFZA offers extensive and generous incentives to potential investors interested in developing and operating free zone enclaves and single-factory free zones in Ghana.
Our Ghanaian operation was the first of our network of production sites and remains the biggest. We have over 3,500 people in Ghana making us one of the biggest private sector employers in the country. Working with Ghana Free Zones gave us the necessary push and incentives we needed to get where we are in Ghana.
Working with GFZA has really relieved some of the pressure we would normally feel. Their monetary and non-monetary incentives are really impressive and seductive. We're really amazed at how smooth the entire process was. Thank you.
