Automobile firms push for strict regulation on car importation
Automobile companies operating in Ghana are
unhappy about the strident increase in the
importation of used cars into the country.

Most of the used cars manufactured in Europe do
not meet the Ghana’s environmental standards.

The automobile companies say the lapses in the
enforcement of laws regulating the importation of
used cars are affecting their business and some
users of the said vehicles.

One of such automobile companies is the Nissan
Group of Africa.

Speaking at an event to unveil the New Nissan
ALTIMA in Ghana, the Managing Director in charge
of Sales and marketing for the Sub Saharan Region,
Xavier Gobille, said it is time government moved
to streamline the importation of used cars.

I think the job of the manufacturer, regulator,
government and local authority is to protect the
consumer and dumping of used cars is not the right
thing to do for the consumer”.

He believes the move will not only benefit
consumers but also the government.

“you cant just regulate everything but you need
to regulate what is good for the consumer in terms
of safety and health, and I really believe that is
the purpose of the law.
