German car manufacturing company, Volkswagen(VW), has started assembling cars in Ghana per their agreement with the Government of Ghana last year.
Earlier in 2019, VW signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Ghana to begin the process of establishing an assembling plant in the country to serve the West African sub-regional market.
The first phase of the project was scheduled to take place in early 2020.
“Volkswagen will come to Ghana very soon; VW CEO Africa Thomas Schäfer. Start of phase 1 VW car assembling in Ghana will be early 2020. Second phase with new premises in 2021. Probably in Tema or Takoradi,” German Ambassador to Ghana, Christoph Retzlaff tweeted.
Following the progress, the Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyeremanteng paid a working visit to the VW Ghana Assembly Plant in the North Industrial Area in Accra.
Below are pictures from his visit and the two models of VW cars assembled in Ghana.
