This article argues that Ghana should implement certain international legal instruments (ILIs) relating to international sale of goods transactions. The article submits that the recommended instruments, if adopted, would harmonise Ghana’s laws with aspects of laws that govern international sale of goods globally and improve Ghana’s legal environment for international sale transactions. It would also afford entities located in Ghana better facilitation and protection in their trade with foreign counterparts, enhance their competitiveness in international sale transactions and improve how Ghana is perceived by the international trading community. The recommended actions hold advantages, have no material disadvantages, and are easy and inexpensive to implement.
