Ghana Remains Safest Country To Invest Despite Economic Challenges - Akufo Addo
President Akufo-Addo says Ghana remains the safest and the best country to invest in West Africa, despite current economic challenges. The President said the decision by automobile giants like Nissan to establish an assembly plant in Ghana confirms the government’s commitment to also helping the private sector grow.
Speaking at the commissioning of a new Assembly Plant for Nissan at Tema, Nana Akufo-Addo said Ghana is gradually becoming a hub for vehicle production. I’m delighted that in the automobile sector we have also successfully attracted investments from a number of global iconic brands including Volkswagon, Toyota, and
Nissan. Other original equipment manufacturing groups including Hyundai, KIA, and Isuzu have also reached the advanced stages of also establishing commercial production facilities in Ghana. These new investments have been realised on the back of the new Ghana Automotive Development Policy and programme which
offers very generous physical incentives and creates an attractive ecosystem for the automotive industry. We recognise the establishment of assembly plants alone does not create employment opportunities expected from the automotive industry, he added.
