No Investor Wants To Establish 1D1F In Sissala West -Trade Minister Reveals

Minister of Trade and Industry, Kobina Tahir Hammond, has revealed that no private sector investor has shown interest in establishing a factory under the government’s flagship program, One-District-One-Factory (1D1F), in the Sissala West constituency.

According to him, the 1D1F initiative which aims to facilitate the establishment of at least one factory in each of Ghana’s 261 districts is driven by private sector demand.

However, despite these efforts, Sissala West has not attracted any private sector interest in setting up a factory.

This issue came to the fore of the House on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, when the Member of Parliament for the area, Mohammed Adams Sukparu asked the Trade Minister what plans the Ministry has to ensure that the people of Sissala West benefit from the 1D1F

The minister entreated the Hon Member for Sissala West to identify and encourage a potential 1D1F Business Promoter to invest in the Municipality.

But the MP who was not so enthused with the answers by the Minister described the situation as deeply worrying.
He questioned how come no business investor has shown interest in the Sissala West District for the past seven years under the 1D1F program.

The lawmaker also accused the NPP government of misleading the people regarding the 1D1F policy and slammed the Akufo-Addo-led government for its failure to create a conducive environment that would attract investors to establish 1D1F projects in the Sissala West District.
