Ghana Selected as Manufacturing Hub for COVID-19 Vaccines in Africa

Ghana has been selected as the manufacturing hub for COVID-19 vaccines in Africa and has also been excluded from the European Union’s list of money laundering nations.

A statement was issued by the Jubilee House, Ghana’s presidential palace following a recent meeting in Belgium with Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice President of the European Commission, Valdis Dombrovskis. According to the European Commission, the Government of Ghana has taken remarkable initiatives towards the domestic manufacturing of vaccines.

Ghana was the first country in the world to receive COVID-19 vaccines through the COVAX Facility and began its first phase of mass vaccination earlier this year. Ghana has administered over 900 000 doses, projecting to vaccinate 20 million people by the end of the year. Taskforce teams elected from the European Union (EU) and Ghana will convene to discuss the approach in the realisation of this initiative that the European Investment Bank (EIB) could be supporting.

The European Commission has also announced the decision to remove Ghana from the AntiMoney Laundering and Terrorism Financing deficiency list. “The European Union acknowledged the efforts Ghana has made in implementing the action plan of the International Country Risk Guide (ICRG) in record time. The Commission, thus, congratulated Ghana for the reforms embarked on, as well as the sustainable, robust systems deployed towards being taken off the list” the release added.
