Odumase, (B/A), Aug. 9, GNA – Government has
allocated GH¢456 million to support the private sector to participate fully in
the implementation of the One-District-One-Factory project.

Mr Perry Curtis Okudzeto, the Deputy Minister
of Information who announced this on Wednesday, said the Ministry of Trade and
Industry has approved 80 local and international investors ready to be engaged
under the project.He was speaking at a town hall meeting organised by the
Sunyani West District Assembly at Odumase, which offered opportunity for the
people to interact with the Assembly.

Mr Okudzeto explained that government had set
up a separate unit at the Ministry of Trade and Industry and was working out
modalities to identify areas to site the factories.

He said the unit had received 350 applications
from local and foreign investors which are ready to partner the government for
the implementation of the project.

Mr Okudzeto affirmed that everything was set
for the smooth implementation of the free Senior High School programme in
September, and added that all bills were covered under the programme.

Mr Okudzeto assured Ghanaians that government
would continue to engage the citizenry in decision making process.

He said democracy could be strengthened and
the national development agenda could thrive if citizens are actively engaged
and abreast with government policies and programmes.

Mr Martin Obeng, the Sunyani West District
Chief Executive, said the meeting had come to stay to provide an avenue to
sensitize the public on government policies and programmes.

He said it was necessary for the assembly to
interact regularly, identify and address the pressing needs of the local
communities.

out modalities for the successful implementation of almost all the various
poverty intervention programmes contained in the NPP 2016 manifesto.
