Accra-based Joy FM reports that the facility by Chinese firm Sunda is one of three other factories established in Ghana in the last two years.

President Akufo-Addo and the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) made the 1DIF a major campaign promise during the 2016 elections.

The idea is to add value to raw materials in Ghana and to also create jobs for the youth in the process.

The government has since rolled out factories in some parts of the country, with the diaper factory being the latest.

President Akufo-Addo said his government will continue to deliver on its promises made to the people of Ghana.

He said despite criticism from the opposition NDC, his government is transforming the country.

Trade minister Alan Kyeremanteng also called on others to take advantage of the tax incentives under the program and invest in Ghana.
