Indian automotive major Mahindra & Mahindra to set up assembly plant and service centre in Ghana

The plant will be built on a 9.5 acre plot in the capital city of Accra.

The move is aimed at capitalising on the massive growth in the region, with 3,500 sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and pick-ups sold in the last seven years.

Earlier this year, the Mumbai-headquartered Mahindra group had announced plans to increase its presence in African countries and grow its business by 50 per cent this year.
