Musheg Sahakian, Global Expansion Director for Yango – a ride-hailing service operated by Yandex and other top managers of the company – held a meeting with President Nana Akufo-Addo during the first Russia-Africa Summit and Forum in Sochi, Russia
During the meeting, President Akufo-Addo encouraged Yandex and Yango to develop their presence in Ghana, including the launch of educational programmes similar to those the company has already successfully introduced in Russia and CIS countries.
For his part, Mr. Sahakian said: “By joining the existing ride-hailing market in Accra, Yango provides its locals with the new choice. Competition is always for good because it motivates all market players to improve, and everyone wins in the end: users get cheaper rides and better service, drivers can earn better money, and the country gets the latest high-level technologies”.
Yandex is currently one of the biggest IT companies in the world.
