President of Ghana, Nana Addo Akufo-Addo on Tuesday commissioned a Toyota vehicle assembly plant in the country.
The assembly plant by the Toyota Tsusho Manufacturing Company Limited is located in the Freezones Enclave in Tema.
The plant is to assembly Toyota Hilux pick-up and other sedans, Daily Graphic of Ghana reported.
While commissioning the plant, President Akufo-Addo said it will help make the acquisition of new vehicles by Ghanaians more affordable as well as enable public sector workers to be able to afford and purchase locally assembled vehicles.
“Government will continue to create the enabling environment to boost the profitability of the emerging automobile sector in Ghana,” he said.
He said the Ministry of Trade and Industry is working with other state institutions such as the Ghana Integrated Aluminum Development Corporation (GIADEC) and the Ghana Integrated Iron and Steel Developing Corporation to develop locally, the required raw material value chains to free the manufacturing sector of the automobile industry.
