The Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry has expressed optimism over the use of Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms in resolving hundreds of business disputes out of the courts.
According to Nana Dr. Appiagyei Dankawoso, President of the Chamber, the high cost of litigation can be avoided by businesses by resorting to mediation or arbitration to settlement commercial disputes.
Addressing delegates at GNCCI’s 43rd Annual General Meeting in Accra on Wednesday, Nana Dankawoso announced the Chamber’s partnership deal with Gamey and Co ADR Centre, in which the Centre would assist GNCCI members to resolve business disputes using ADR mechanisms.
“The Chamber is working together with Gamey and Co ADR Centre, the leading ADR Centre in Ghana,” he said, adding that as part of the partnership, the Chamber is in the process of setting up an ADR centre as one of its special projects at its secretariat.
According to Nana Dankawoso, the availability of the centre will afford its teeming members and the entire Ghanaian business community to the opportunity to amicably resolve business and industrial disputes through ADR.
The chamber last month signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Gamey And Co ADR Centre to formally advance their partnership.
