Chief Executive for the Denkyembour District in the Eastern Region, Mr. Seth
Ofosu Birikorang, has revealed that a contractor from the District has shown
interest in the Public-Private Partnership for the establishment of District
factories and he is planning to establish Ceramic factory for the District.
According to the DCE, Mr. Seth Ofosu Birikorang, Minerals Commission has granted the private partner's concession at Apinaman and Topreman which have clay for the factory's raw material.
Speaking at Townhall meeting in Akwatia, Mr. Ofosu Birikorang said the private investor for the ceramic factory has been endorsed by Ministry for Trade and Industry and he is currently at china mobilizing resources for the factory establishment.
The DCE said the District initially got some investors from Malaysia for Palm Oil Processing Factory but after thorough research, they realized the factory will lack raw material due to similar factories existing for some years now in Kwae in kwaebibirem District.
The current government under the able leadership of H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo seeks to address the problem by undertaking a massive industrialization campaign across the country, which will equip and empower communities to utilize their local resources in manufacturing products that are in high demand both locally and internationally.
This will allow the country to reap the well-known rewards of industrialization, such as gains in efficiency in every facet of life in our society, an increase in agricultural and manufacturing output, a reduction in the reliance on imports and an increase in the production of consumer goods and food availability.
