A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Otchere-Darko, says President Akufo-Addo is working to ensure his vision of an industrialised economy becomes reality.

In a tweet, Mr Otchere-Darko cited the recent commissioned Nissan Assembly Plant in Tema to speak of the works being undertaken by the President.

“He came in with a vision to industralise Ghana. Already Nissan, VW, SinoTruk, Peugeot, Suzuki and Toyota are assembling here. KIA, Hyundai and Renault to start production this year,” he wrote.

According to him, the good work done the incumbent government led by President Akufo-Addo shows “Ghana is on course to produce for an integrating Africa.”

He is optimistic the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) will be in full swing by 2030.

On Thursday, March 31, President Akufo-Addo commissioned the Nissan Assembly Plant; the new state-of-the-art assembly plant said to have the capacity to assemble 5,000 new vehicles annually.

He said the presence of the facility comes to support the industrial transformation agenda to diversify the economy.

“Today marks yet another important mile stone I our quest to make Ghana a new manufacturing hub for Africa, in particular, realise our vision of becoming a leading player in the automobile industry in Africa. I’m delighted that in the automobile sector, we have attracted investment from a number of global iconic brands,” he added.

The President noted government recognises that the establishment of assembly plant alone does not create the significance deployment opportunities expected from the automotive industry.

In this regard, he said, “the elaboration of a comprehensive complement and supply development program by the Trade Ministry to support local production of component and parts for the automobile industry.”
