Ghana will on 29th May 2019 celebrate “ECOWAS Brown Card Day’’, an insurance scheme protocol signed on 29th May 1982 in Cotonou.
According to the Ghana National Bureau, the scheme was designed to aid the free movement of persons and goods and services across national boundaries of ECOWAS member states.

It equally serves as a common insurance cover against third party liabilities that visiting motorists may incur while they drive across various national boundaries in the ECOWAS Region.

Meanwhile, the theme of the event is: “The ECOWAS Brown Card Insurance Scheme: A Catalyst for Trade Facilitation and Regional Integration.”

A number of respected dignitaries from West African countries are expected to grace the occasion. (NAN)
