Government of Ghana under the leadership of his excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akufffo Addo has given Kantanka Automobile aka Kantanka cars a 10 year tax free benefit to make and manufacture cars with no stress.
This means that the Ghana Revenue Service in the next 10 years will not collect any tax from the Kantanka Group of Companies.
This is also includes a duty waiver when they import materials for assembling and manufacturing purposes of automobile.
This is a pragmatic approach to ensure the flourish of the indigenous car manufacturer.
Good move and great initiative, government!
We hope to see The Kantanka brand flourish as many of us are hoping for.
Government has done its part but it could also buy Kantanka cars only for all its operations.
However, we expect Kantanka cars to be as cheap as ‘konkonte’ from now on.
