Hi Albert,

Others have already answered in respect of the Marine/Freight Risks, however, you may also wish to consider the other areas of risk.

Insuring your Products Liability risk for supplying into Ghana can be arranged quite easily from the UK, but ti becomes far more complicated if you have a Ghanian subsidiary wherby local covers may be required.

Either way, if this is something that you would like to have some advice on, please fell free to contact me.

Kind regards,
