He reiterated the LRA’s commitment to regular engagements, highlighting the need for transparent and proactive contributions from the business community to stimulate genuine economic growth, which will impact revenue collection.

Acknowledging the strategic partnership between the LRA and the business sector, Commissioner General Jallah encouraged frank discussions on sectoral challenges to facilitate targeted solutions.

During the interactive session, business leaders voiced concerns regarding delays in goods clearance, cumbersome procedures, and escalating shipping line fees. In response, LRA Customs Commissioner Saa Samoi reaffirmed the authority’s dedication to collaboration, pledging to address the highlighted challenges in tandem with relevant stakeholders.
