Ghana stands tall in the selection of African countries for the possible manufacturing of COVID-19 vaccines, the European Union (EU) has said.
Vice President of the EU, Valdis Dombrovskis made the disclosure during President Akufo-Addo’s two-day working visit to Brussels in Belgium.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Jubilee House on Friday, May 21, 2021.
“At the meeting with the Vice President of the European Commission, Valdis Dombrovskis, the European Commission indicated the selection of Ghana as a possible manufacturing hub for COVID-19 vaccines in Africa,” the statement added.
The selection of the West-African country follows the initiatives already taken by the Government of Ghana towards the domestic manufacturing of vaccines.
Two task force teams from the EU and Ghana will meet shortly to discuss modalities towards the realization of the initiative.
It was stated that the move if successful could get support from the European Investment Bank (EIB).
