The Government of Ghana has commenced discussions with the Global Legal Entity Identification Foundation (GLEIF) to allow identity verification of Ghanaian businesses globally, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said.
This follows the successful roll-out and acceptance of the Ghana Card as the single source of identity for Ghanaians and persons living in Ghana, the Vice President said.
When completed, Dr Bawumia intimated, Ghana is expected to be the first country in Africa to have this global verification standard.
This will open up markets across the continent and the globe, he added.
Dr Bawumia said these as part of his remarks at the opening ceremony of the 53rd General Assembly of the World Trade Centers Association in Accra on Monday April 24.
