                           Brief Background

                        In November 2023, a ten member delegation from the Judicial Service of Ghana and the Ministry of Trade and Industry
                        embarked on a seven-day study visit to the Judiciary of Kenya. This forms part of the Business Regulatory Reform (BRR)
                       Programme of the Ministry of Trade and Industry with funding from the World Bank. Under this Programme, the Judicial
                       Service has received funding support to pilot the implementation of an end-to-end digitalized system in six (6) District
                       Courts in the country. The selected courts are; Adenta District Court ‘A’ and ‘B’, Tema TDC Court, Gbese Court formerly
                       Adjabeng District Court and Koforidua District Court ‘A’ and ‘B’.

                       The objective of the study tour was to gain a first-hand knowledge of the technology systems, infrastructure and legal
                       process underpinning the Kenyan Digitalization agenda and how same has been sustained, as well as how the rules of court
                       and legislation are aligned with the rapid changes arising out of the use of technology.
