Presidents John Dramani Mahama and Faure Gnassingbe of Ghana and Togo respectively have inaugurated a joint border facility at Noepe in the hope that the facility would enhance the documentation of goods and services with the provision of modern equipment and structures.
The facility which was financed by ECOWAS in collaboration with the European Union is made up of an administration block, customs brigade, inspection bay, customs warehouse, entry gate control post, Weigh Bridge and scanner control rooms, as well as maintenance posts.
Others are a fire service post, commercial service centre, health service post, pedestrian control post, veterinary service post, rest shelter and washrooms for pedestrians among others.
President Mahama said it was unacceptable for the security agencies at various points to continue to delay persons, goods and services in the sub-region while intra-trade among other continents were growing on a daily basis.
Here are pictures from the event.
