The Ministry of Trade and Industry has finally purchased a car assembled locally by Kantanka Automobile.

The car, which cost 150,000 cedis was received by the sector minister, Alan Kyeremanten at a short ceremony at the ministry in Accra. According to Alan Kyeremanten, the decision to buy the Kantaka cars was made in a bid to serve as encouragement to others to purchase locally made products.
