We characterize the approximation property of Banach spaces and their dual spaces by the position of finite rank operators in the space of compact operators. In particular, we show that a Banach space E has the approximation property if and only if for all closed subspaces F of $c_0$, the space ℱ(F,E) of finite rank operators from F to E has the n-intersection property in the corresponding space K(F,E) of compact operators for all n, or equivalently, ℱ(F,E) is an ideal in K(F,E).
