Nontraditional exporters from Ghana were urged to work hard and break through the Asian market if they wanted to see an increase in their profitability.

This, officials said, was because the Asian market was growing at a fast rate and Ghanaian exporters would benefit after breaking into it.

They were also urged to look at forming cooperatives in their export ventures so that they could secure stable prices for their products in the international competitive markets.

These were among the strong points of advice that came from government officials to the exporters at Ghana's First Exporters Forum 2010, organized by the Ghana Export Promotions Council (GEPC) here on Wednesday.

In a speech read on his behalf, Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry, Mahama Ayarigah, said that government's efforts in creating the enabling environment for investors was yielding results as major international airlines, such as Delta and United Airlines from the United States, were now flying directly from Accra to U.S. destinations.

"This is the kind of environment we need to stimulate investors' confidence, and with this, the exporter stands to gain, " he declared.

The deputy minister noted that since the Ghanaian economy could only experience a quantum leap on the back of a corresponding boom in the nontraditional export sector, exporters needed to work harder to make the sector grow.
