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.
