UK-Ghana Chamber of Commerce Delegation Pays Courtesy Call on CJ

                        A 33-member delegation of the UK-Ghana Chamber of Commerce, led by Mr. Korieh Duodu of Egality Law,
                        has paid a courtesy call on the Hon. Lady Chief Justice, Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo, at the
                        Conference Room of the Administration Block of the Judicial Service in Accra.

                        The visit was to present and discuss with Justice Torkornoo, key observations of a Business Environment
                        & Competiveness Survey conducted by the Chamber in 2022 and proffer some recommendations.

                        Discussions centered on delays in court hearings and frequent adjournments, virtual courts, corruption,
                        delayed judgments and  the need to have more specialized courts.

                                             CJ with members of delegation at the meeting


                       Mr. Duodu intimated that the survey found virtual courts to be very efficient and proposed its scope be
                       broadened and complemented by a stricter adherence to Cause Lists and allotted time frame.

                                                        Mr. Korieh Duodu briefing CJ on the findings of the survey


                      According to him, the Chamber, based on the survey, believes that the creation of specialized courts like
                      a Media and Human Rights Court, an Intellectual Property Court and a Technology & Construction Court
                      will create a greater and better judicial experience for Court Users, speed up the adjudication process
                     and ultimately, save cost.  

                     The Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Justice Gertrude Sackey Torkornoo, expressed profound gratitude to the
                     Chamber for bringing to her attention the findings of the study.

                     She pledged her commitment to working with the Chamber in finding lasting solutions to the challenges
                     identified in the survey, paramount amongst them being her desire to collaborate with key stakeholders
                     to organize a Land Conference to dialogue on the myriad of challenges in the land sector. 

                                                The Hon. Lady Chief Justice explaining a point



                    The UK-Ghana Chamber of Commerce is made up of businesses, business chambers, multilateral and bilateral
                    development partners committed to the cause of business environment reforms to minimize risks of doing business
                    in Ghana. According to the Chamber, the Business Environment & Competiveness Survey was done in 2022, with
                    306 businesses participating. The Chamber is optimistic, that the report on the survey would serve as a reference
                    and guide for stakeholders, investors, businesses and policymakers.
