Ambassador Delivers Remarks at Program Launch of Excise Tax Stamp Policy

On August 30, 2017, Ambassador Robert P. Jackson delivered remarks at the launch of Ghana’s Excise Tax Stamp Policy, held in Accra. The event was attended by Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Marfo, the Honorable Minister of Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, the Honorable Deputy Minister of Finance Kwaku Kwarteng, Ministry of Finance Director Tony Dzadra, Commissioner General of the Ghana Revenue Authority Emmanual Kofi Nti, other distinguished guests, and members of the media. Ambassador Jackson noted that one of the United States’ highest priorities — shared by Ghana — is to promote American investments that create jobs and generate income for Ghanaian families, while at the same time serving Ghanaian, American, and international consumers.

“Today’s launch of the Excise Tax Stamp Policy is significant because it signals a commitment by Ghana to better serve consumers and citizens in partnership with Authentix, an American company whose stated mission is to manufacture and provide brand protection, product authentication, supply chain security, excise tax recovery, banknote authentication, and fitness solutions to national governments, Fortune 500 companies, and central banks worldwide,” he said.
