The Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kyeremanten has visited the assembling plant of Volkswagen (VW) in Accra, to have first-hand insight regarding the ongoing work of the automobile giant.
Accompanied by some officials of the Trade Ministry, Mr Kyeremanten expressed satisfaction with the facility of VW.
“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 mentioned.
President Nana Akufo-Addo in his State of the Nation Address, recently, said VW, was due to start production by the end of April 2020 as it was building an assembling plant in the North Industrial Area.
