Mrs Gifty Ohene-Konadu announced on Thursday at a news conference in Accra that the amount each contractor will receive will be based on the project size and operational categorisation.

In line with that, government has disbursed GHC400 million to the One District One Factory Secretariat as its initial commitment to the programme, which is one of the job creation flagship programmes of the Akufo-Addo-led government.

Additionally, the programme has generated 3 billion dollars in investment pledges and commitments from local and foreign investors.
