The Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen has paid a working visit to the assembly site of Volkswagen (VW), Ghana in Accra.

His visit comes ahead of the launching of its first assembled vehicles in the country.

The establishment of the Plant follows an agreement between Ghana and the German company.

Thomas Schaefer, Head of the VW Sub-Saharan Region and the Minister signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a vehicle assembly facility and to assess the feasibility of a modern Mobility Concept for Ghana.

The Minister and his team were impressed with the pace at which VW is moving and has re-echoed the commitment made by President Akufo-Addo.

“I assure Volkswagen and its local assembler in Ghana of the full support of the government in creating an enabling environment and incentive framework to make their investment a major success,” he said.
