President Akufo-Addo launches first VW vehicles assembled in Ghana

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Monday, August 3, 2020, unveiled the first VW vehicles assembled in the newly established VW Assembly Plant in Ghana.

The models being assembled are Tiguan, Teramont, Amarok, Caddy, Polo and Passat.

The VW assembly plant in Ghana will create a lot of highly skilled jobs, reduce the high amounts of foreign exchange used in the importation of second-hand vehicles, and, thereby, help strengthen the Ghanaian currency, whilst, at the same time, earn the nation foreign exchange through the exportation of made-in-Ghana vehicles, President Akufo-Addo said:

“With the Chinese company, Sinotruk, already engaged in the assembly of trucks in Ghana, I am hopeful that other global automobile companies, which have indicated their preparedness to set-up shop in Ghana, will soon follow the remarkable, pioneering example of Volkswagen.”
