The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) is the national port authority of Ghana, responsible for the governance, maintenance and operation of the ports of Ghana, principally the Port of Sekondi-Takoradi, and Port of Tema, and the Fishing Harbour at Tema. GPHA main offices are in Sekondi-Takoradi, and Tema.[1][2]

Ports and Harbours[edit]

The Takoradi Harbour and Tema Harbour and ports serves Sekondi-Takoradi and Tema's role as manufacturing centers, and handles cargo in transshipment to and from bordering countries north of Ghana. The Golden Jubilee Terminal is a recently opened facility of the Tema port.[3][4]
