Last week, the government of Ghana signed an agreement between Volkswagen, as well as a local industry to assemble vehicles as part of Germany’s foreign policy agenda.
This was disclosed at a joint conference today [Thursday] with President Akufo-Addo and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in a discussion on her plans to increase investment in Africa to assist development.
In a post shared by the Dep. Communications director, this agreement is one which speaks very well of Volkswagen and should serve as an inspiration to other investors to take steps towards operating in Ghana.
This agreement also meant setting up a car manufacturing plant in West Africa which will contribute immensely to the growth of the economy.
This result also meant that the German Automaker, Volkswagen, will also be competing with Ghana’s indigenous inventor and automaker, Kantanka Automobile by Apostle Dr. Ing. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka.
