The Deputy Minister of Transport Nii Kwartei Titus Glover says the Ghanaian economy is becoming more attractive to foreign investors to invest in the country.
According to the MP for Tema East, the Ghanaian economy has led to a number of foreign companies establishing in the country and one of such companies, is Somoco Ghana.
The Deputy Minister said, the establishment of such companies shows the confidence imposed in the economy and the commitment of foreigners to contribute to the growth of Ghana’s economy.
He said, government was committed to creating an enabling environment and the framework for businesses to thrive in the country.
He made the remarks at the launch of the new Boxer X150 motorbike in Accra by Somoco Ghana, distributors of Bajaj Boxer Bikes.
He described Bajaj Auto Limited as the leading auto company in the world adding, the company has demonstrated together with the distributors Somoco Ghana that, they are committed to facilitating industrial growth.
He also indicated that the two companies have taken steps to construct an assembling plant in Ghana to assemble motorbikes in Ghana.
This he described as laudable since it will create jobs for the youth, improve our GDP and transformation of technology into our Ghanaian space.
The vision of the transport Ministry he said, is to create the necessary regulatory framework and provide the enabling environment to ensure safe, secured, efficient, reliable, effective and assisted transportation system in the country.
The motorbike population he noted has risen shapely and has become the mode of commercial transportation in the country despite its illegality.
He was however quick to add that, since the law allows private use and courier services through the use of motorbikes, safety standards must be met in the manufacturing of motorbikes.
He said, safety must not be compromised and I believe that the new Boxer 150 has met all the safety standards.
He called on the company to assist the National Road Safety Commission and other stakeholders in championing the road safety campaign to reduce the high rate of motor accidents in the country.
The Boxer 150 is a bike that stays strong and takes all the load with ease. Boxer 150 is a great combination of power and fuel efficiency that makes it an ideal bike for city travel as well as for longer rides and across terrains.
Its rugged and solid styling is meant for those commuters who seek better bike performance.
A motorcycle that delivers power on all load and speed conditions. A bike meant to outlast the toughest of roads.
