Good news for Ghanaians and Africa at large as two automobile giants, Kia and Hyundai promises to build assembly plants in Ghana
Just as you have probably seen in the photo above, Alan John Kyerematen, the Ghanaian Minister for Trade & Industry, broke the news of the South Korean automotive giants establishing assembly plants in Ghana. He revealed that Kia and Hyundai will be having their West African operational plants established in Ghana before the end of the year 2022. He also disclosed that the proposed assembly plants will enable Kia and Hyundai to become players in Ghana’s car production market which currently has other big “guns” like Sinotruck, Volkswagen, Kantanka, Nissan and Toyota-Suzuki.

According to the Ghanaian Minister for Trade and Industry, the country’s auto development scheme will supply 3,600 assembly-related jobs and 6,600 parts manufacturing jobs in Ghana. This is obviously fantastic news for the Ghanaian youths and workforce as they would get opportunities to put their knowledge to use in their country rather than looking for “greener” pastures overseas.
It is also worth mentioning that just a few weeks ago, the popular American microblogging company Twitter also confirmed that it will be establishing its African headquarters in Ghana.
