The implementation of the one-district, one-factory project (1D1F) has commenced in four Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) in the Central Region Ghana.
The factories include a potato processing factory in the Gomoa West District, a block moulding factory in the Awutu Senya West District, a pineapple processing factory in the Ekumfi District and a fruit processing factory in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem Municipality.
Central Regional Minister, Mr Kwamena Duncan, said while speaking at the Central Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) meeting in Cape Coast on Friday, raw materials for the running of the factories were available, adding that some of the factories were almost 50 per cent complete.
Mr Kwamena Duncan said the factories were already providing jobs for some of the youth in the region, saying, “upon completion, I am sure more of the youth would be employed”.
The meeting was to monitor and evaluate the performance of the various sectors of the regional coordinating council in the region. It was attended by various heads of department and organisations.
