The Commission said this follows the initiatives already taken by the Ghana Government towards the domestic manufacturing of vaccines.
Earlier this month, three Ghanaian companies working to produce COVID-19 vaccines locally presented proposals on their plans to the government.
Task force teams from the European Union (EU) and Ghana will meet shortly to discuss modalities towards the realisation of this initiative, which, in principle, could be supported by the European Investment Bank (EIB), the statement said.
The EU announced on Friday in Rome that it intends to invest 1 billion euros (about US$1.2 billion) to build COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing hubs in Africa.
Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Commission, said it will also donate at least 100 million doses of coronavirus vaccines to low- and middle-income countries by the end of the year. (PANA/NAN)

Nigeria continues to lose to Ghana in global evaluation of African countries for siting industrial and commercial institutions in spite of our leadership position in industries and commerce, in spite of our superior human and natural resource potential, .huge population and huge market potential. Why? Large scale insecurity, infrastructural deficiency, high level corruption, pedestrian political leadership, large scale insecurity, poorly managed economy, mediocrity at the topmost level of administration. We pray this sorry state is arrested soonest otherwise the future is not so bright..
