The Ministry of Trade and Industry has purchased one Kantanka SUV at a cost of GHS150,000.00.

Mr Alan Kyerematen, the sector minister, receiving the vehicle at a ceremony in Accra, said the initiative was to encourage Ghanaians to buy Made-in-Ghana products to boost local production.

Mr Kyerematen said the gesture was part of government’s vision to support local enterprises and initiatives to expand production and create jobs for the citizenry. He said the Kantanka brand had distinguished itself in developing local skills and new technologies and called for support from institutions to ensure the technologies produced get international recognition.

The Minister urged the public to buy the vehicles and other Made-in-Ghana products to increase local enterprises in the country. Kwadwo Safo Junior, the Chief Executive Officer of Kantanka Automobile, commended the government for taking the initiative to purchase the vehicle, saying it would boost public confidence to patronise their products.

He said the company had the capacity to produce more vehicles and that it manufactured 70 per cent of its products while importing 30 per cent. Mr Safo Junior said the company had been involved in the assembling of vehicles in the country some years ago in a bid to help improve the automobile industry and allow for competition on the international scene.
