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.

"By purchasing this vehicle from Kantanka, we are supporting local enterprises and initiatives. Secondly, this is a very practical demonstration and vision of this government of establishing and supporting the private sector to develop strategic anchor industries - one of which is the automotive and vehicle assembling...” he said.

We are pleased to be part of this initiative because they are developing local skills, developing new technologies, transforming these technologies and using these skills to manufacture vehicles. We are also developing new enterprises that will link to the Kantanka initiative,” he added.


Although the government has imposed a ban on the purchase of cars by state institutions, the decision by the ministry is not likely to court controversy with many wondering rather why it took so long for the ministry to purchase the vehicle. Many Ghanaians who have expressed interest in buying the locally made cars says the price is a huge deterrent
