We Have Completed 76 Factories So Far, 232 Projects Ongoing – Kojo Oppong Nkrumah Reveals



A total of 76 factory projects executed over the last three years under the ‘One District, One Factory’ initiative has been completed and working.

Mr Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, Minister of Information, said an additional 232 of those projects were at various stages of completion.

One of the projects, the Amantin Agro-Processing Factory in the Bono-East Region, which is under construction, would this week be inspected by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as part of his working tour of the Region, according to the Minister.

When completed, the project is anticipated to help reduce post-harvest losses to the barest minimum, increase the yield and income of farmers.

Mr Oppong-Nkrumah, who was addressing the media in Kumasi, said the Ministry of Trade and Industry was working around the clock to realize the government’s vision of providing the various districts with the requisite factories.

The aim is to open up the Ghanaian economy, create jobs and wealth for the masses as the country seeks to ensure accelerated growth through industrialization.

According to the Minister, the government was executing the IDIF projects alongside the rehabilitation of roads across the country.
