This was revealed by the Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr. Alan John Kyerematen.
The Minister, who was speaking that a forum by the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce (GNCC) on the program, disclosed that the said investors had submitted applications to the government seeking to establish factories under the project.
Alan Kyerematen was stated that the applications included expression of interest and business plans for the government’s flagship programme.
The “One District, One Factory” initiative was a leading campaign message of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party during the campaign buildup to the 2016 General Elections.
The initiative, when originally proposed in December 2016, was met with fierce opposition from the then-governing National Democratic Congress political party.
Nana Addo, however, has maintained that his government is determined to see to it that the initiative takes off smoothly and is duly implemented across all districts in Ghana.
