Gov’t to ban importation of accident vehicles

The Government has initiated processes in parliament to ban the importation of overaged and accident vehicles.

The Customs amendments bill currently in parliament when passed will regulate importation of vehicles.

Currently, overaged vehicles are allowed into the country after payment of penalty.

But speaking during a media encounter in parliament Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu explained that the decision many automobile companies to establish outlets in Ghana has informed amendments to Ghana’s laws on overaged and accident vehicles.

German car-maker, Volkswagen is one of the automobile companies set to open an assembling plant in Ghana in early 2020.

In 2018 the company announced plans to set up a plant in Ghana as it continues to expand across Africa.

Volkswagen already builds vehicles in Kenya and recently opened another car plant in Rwanda as part of its expansion project in East Africa.

Toyota is also another company that will start to assemble vehicles in Ghana in August this year.
