Bilateral trade between Ghana and the UK amounted to £579 million for the year 2010, British government officials in Ghana have said.

In 2009, Ghana was the UK’s 10th largest exports market and the 12th largest import market in Africa.

Imports from the UK to Ghana amounted to £354 million while exports from Ghana to the UK stood at £225 million, Ruby Golo of the United Kingdom Trade and Investment (UKTI) told reporters during a Media Open Day at the British High Commission in Accra.

According to the High Commission, in 2009 UK exports of goods to Ghana went down 2% on 2008 figures and UK imports from Ghana were down 7% on 2008. In the first 11 months of 2010, compared with a year earlier, UK exports to Ghana were up 31% and imports up 13% in pounds sterling terms.

Ghana mostly exports cocoa and spices, fish products, vegetables and fruits to the UK.
