In the Bosomtwe District of the Ashanti Region, 4 private companies have submitted proposals to the National Secretariat of the One District One factory to operate in the district.
The companies are Vester Oil Company (vegetable oil manufacturing), at Deduako Junction; Ashanti Food Company (a food processing company) at Krom Adwafo; Golden Web Company Ltd (vegetable oil) at New Kokobriko, and OMG Company at Pramso, also a gas cylinder manufacturing company.
With the exception of the OMG Company at Pramso which is yet to start operations, all the three others have started initial operations at limited capacities and are ready to rollout fully when approved by the 1D1F Secretariat for the flagship the government’s programme.
The District Chief Execute for Bosomtwe, Mr Joseph Kwasi Asuming, who announced this at a general assembly meeting of the assembly on Thursday, said it was waiting for response from the One District One Factory Headquarters in Accra for approval to enable the businesses engage fully.
The DCE was upbeat that all the proposals would be approved so they could operate well and employ many youth in the district and beyond to increase commercial activities in the district, increase revenue of the assembly as well as increase gross domestic product of the nation.
Mr Asuming said the assembly had put in place a district implementation support committee for the 1D1F to assist in the smooth implementation and operations of the project.
