Volkswagen SA to start vehicle assembly in Ghana

Volkswagen South Africa (VWSA) will start semi-knocked down (SKD) assembly in Ghana in November this year, giving its expansion into Africa additional momentum. Thomas Schaefer, chair and MD of VWSA, said the group has registered a company in Ghana and will finalise all the details for a joint venture with Universal Motors, its long-term partner in Accra, in the next four weeks.
