German Ambassador to Ghana has assured that the country will soon see a Volkswagen which is made in Ghana ‘soon’.
Christoph Retzlaff gave the assurance while reacting news that the first ever ‘Made in Rwanda’ Volkswagen has been produced.
The first ever ‘Made in Rwanda’ Volkswagen was produced in a Kigali Assembly plant which commenced production on Wednesday, June 27, 2019.
The Assembly plant is expected to produce several models of the biggest European car manufacturer in the coming years. Their initial target is 5000 vehicles per year.
In August 2018, the Government of Ghana and VW signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the company to establish an Assembling plant in Ghana which will serve the West African sub-regional market.
The assembling plant is expected to produce about 5,000 units of vehicles every year with plans to increase production depending on the market demand.
More than a year after the announcement, the plant is yet to commence operations in Ghana.
But the German Ambassador has assured that the project is still on course and the German company will soon unveil a ‘Made in Ghana’ Volkswagen soon.
“Great news. Soon we will see the first “Made in Ghana” Volkswagen here in Ghana…,” he tweeted in response to the Made in Rwanda VW.
