Automobile company, Suzuki, has unveiled its first locally assembled vehicle in Ghana called Suzuki Swift.
The assembling of the Suzuki Swift vehicle by Toyota Tsusho Manufacturing Ghana Company limited began in Ghana in September 2022.
The assembling of the vehicle in Ghana was based on a Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in developing automotive industry signed between Toyota Tsusho and the Government of Ghana at the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) held in Yokohama, Japan in August 2019.
Speaking at the commissioning of the new Suzuki Swift, Managing Officer of Suzuki Motor Corporation, Koichi Suzuki said Suzuki sales in Africa increased by 60% to 116,000 units and in Ghana increased by 63% to over 1,000 units.
He added that, this alliance is a very important part of the company’s strategy in the African market, and will continue to strengthen the alliance to enhance Suzuki’s presence in Africa, especially in Ghana.
“We would like to expand Suzuki’s presence in Ghana. We hope that the people of Ghana will grow fond of our products including the Swift”, he said.
Chief Operating Officer of Africa Division of Japan’s Toyota Tsusho Corporation, Shinichiro Otsuka, also reiterated the company’s commitment to supporting the development of the automobile industry in Ghana.
“We are committed to contributing to the economy, industry, and society of the Republic of Ghana through automobile production together with Suzuki Motor Corporation”, he added.
