The Automobile Assemblers Association of Ghana will host its maiden Automotive Summit on the 20th of March 2023, at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) Grand Arena.

The theme for the summit, ‘Creating a New Economic Backbone for Ghana and the Sub-Region’, will present an opportunity for leading experts and industry professionals in the sector to discuss latest trends, challenges and opportunities in the automobile industry.

The summit will concurrently run along with an exhibition of over 20 vehicle models locally assembled in Ghana by members of the AAAG.

“We are delighted to host this maiden summit, which will explore the automobile industry’s future and the technologies and innovations that will shape it. This will provide us an opportunity as a country to discuss the issues and opportunities impacting businesses and the automobile industry as a whole,” AAAG president, Mr. Jeffrey Oppong Peprah, emphasised.

The AAAG membership includes Volkswagen Ghana, Japan Motors, Rana Motors, Kantanka Automobile, Silverstar Ghana, Stallion Group, and Toyota-Tsusho Company. Associate members are Toyota Ghana and CFAO Motors Ghana.

The event will attract an audience featuring hundreds of senior-level representatives from across the industry’s length and breadth, including vehicle manufacturers, component manufacturers, engineers, government, the financial sector, insurance firms, global organisations and the media.

The panel discussions will address key areas of focus for the automotive industry – including sustainability, competitiveness, standards, the creation of a local used-car market, component manufacturing, retail, auto financing and insurance, among others.

Speakers include senior executives from vehicle manufacturers, policymakers and a host of content experts from automotive and aligned industries.

This summit is proudly supported by the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Secretariat, Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) and the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
