Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is in Mauritius lobbying investors to come to Ghana to invest in the Nana Akufo-Addo government’s ‘One District One Factory’ programme.
Speaking at a Breakfast Business Meeting hosted by the Mauritius Minister for Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade in collaboration with the Board of Investment of Mauritius, Dr Bawumia emphasized the NPP government’s determination to make the private sector a major player in Ghana’s economy, and called on Mauritian and other businesses to take advantage of the pro-business policies announced in the budget to set up shop in Ghana.
“An industrialisation drive is our main agenda, the ‘One-District One Factory’ is the programme to achieve this, and the 216 districts have raw materials and need push up to get value addition to the products” he stated.
“Ghana cannot do it alone, we are in the context of the global economy and need partners, that is why we cherish the South-South cooperation between Ghana and Mauritius so much.
The ‘One District One Factory’ programme is a public-private partnership for ensuring nationwide spread of industrialization in all 216 districts in Ghana.
