BACKGROUND OF THE BUSINESS
The Federation of Associations of Ghanaian Exporters (FAGE) is an umbrella organization of exporter, and product associations, established in 1992. With over 2,500 companies represented, FAGE embodies Ghanaian businesses in the agricultural and manufacturing industries, including exporters of food crops, seafood, agricultural products, forest products, handicrafts and textiles. FAGE promotes the expansion and diversification of Ghanaian exports to foreign markets by assisting member firms in developing and marketing their products, and by improving the enabling environment for trade through government advocacy.
Member services comprise secretarial functions for its member associations, IT support as well as trade fair services.
The organization also advocates for trade expansion, participating in policymaking forums and making recommendations to government agencies and foreign entities based on its knowledge of local and international markets. These linkages between government, Ghanaian business, and their global partners facilitate doing business in Ghana and enhance the performance of non-traditional exports.
