The District’s Secretariat is located on the 2nd floor of the GIFF Building, Tema

Being the nerve-centre of the District, it has corporate records of all its members; their office locations, telephone numbers, postal and e-mail addresses.
The Secretariat among others provides the following services to members.
Processing documents for the issuance of guarantee to enable them renew their operational licence at CEPS.
Dissemination of information from all stakeholders to members. This is done in the form of notices on Notice Boards located at vantage points, circulars which are distributed door to door, faxes, e-mail and on phone.
The Secretariat also serves as an arbitration center as disputes and differences between Importers and their Agents are settled there.
It is also the public relations unit of the District as it is the main link between members and the general public.
All forms of enquiries are made at the Secretariat. Questions agitating the minds of the public are answered. Continuous public education is also provided from the Secretariat.
Organize training courses for both Corporate and Non-corporate members.
Liaise between International and Local stake holders and members
Arrange for monthly meetings for both Executives and general membership.
Implement decisions arrived at meetings and government directives.
The district also serves as the major transit corridor for the land-locked countries of Burkina Faso, Niger, Togo, Cote D’voir and Mali who ship their goods through Tema Port. With the government policy of making our ports the gateway to the sub-region the District Secretariat liaise between the Import/Export public with any problems that may arise. Especially with the recent conflicts with the neighboring countries, the volumes have soared and the associated pressure on both human and equipments at the ports.
