One district, one factory is working - Secretariat coordinator

- The secretariat coordinator has defended the government policy as something that is being implemented

- Ohene-Konadu says the mid-year review of the budget provides support for the policy

Gifty Ohene-Konadu, the national coordinator of the ‘One District, One Factory’ (1D1F) secretariat, says the flagship policy of government is being actualised.

She was responding to critics, especially members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Madam Ohene-Konadu defended the government saying detractors only wanted to discredit President Akufo-Addo's government.

According to the report via myjoyonline.com, the national coordinator delved into the details citing the finance minister's mid-year budget review. The minister said in parliament that Cabinet had approved a number of measures to support the policy.

Incentives such as tax waivers have been proposed by the finance minister as part of a package to individuals and businesses involved.

Speaking on Asempa FM's news talk show Eko Sii Sen, Ohene-Konadu said: “The One district, One factory is real. What the Finance Minister said in parliament is the final thing and so who am I to say otherwise?”
