Can someone share the market analysis that was done to justify VW establishing a plant in Ghana? I bet this is a hollow initiative just to make the government look good. For a car manufacturing plant to establish in Ghana, strategic decisions have to be made as to the ff.:
- access to reliable energy source
- market size
- availability of qualified human resources
- profitability
- available backward and forward linkages
- good transport infrastructure: land, sea and air.
Where is the comparative advantage of Ghana over countries like Nigeria, in the sub-region? Remember Nigeria had a Peugeot assembly part in the 70s. Where is it today? Only short-sighted and party faithfuls will applaud and believe this baloney. We will revisit the plant 3 yrs from today. Wake Ghana and smell the coffee.
