In his State of the Nation Address, President Nana Akufo-Addo said VW was due to start production by the end of April 2020.

According to him, Sinotruk, which also expressed interest in Ghana, will also begin assembling a plant this year.

“Toyota is scheduled to start the assembly of vehicles in Tema in the last quarter of this year. We have high hopes for this new industry, which has come to join our Kantanka”, the President mentioned.
