The National Coordinator of the “One District One Factory” Secretariat, Gifty Ohene Konadu, has revealed that pledges made by both local and foreign investors towards government’s ‘One District, One Factory' policy have hit $3 billion.
The policy was a major campaign promise by then candidate Nana Akufo- Addo during last year’s election.
Speaking to the press Thursday, Madam Konadu said, “the interest has so far generated investment pledges and commitments, to the tune of $3 billion. These are pledges made from local and foreign investors.”
The coordinator further revealed that ten factories will be ready for commissioning as part of the project over the next couple of months.
“By all indications, the President will commission them as part of our official launch of the programme,” madam Konadu said.
According to her, the secretariat has also started receiving inquiries about its work adding, “on the average, we have about 30 inquiries a week on what we have to offer as to what roles entities and individuals can play in order to benefit from it,”
