The Minister for Trade and Industry, Allan Kwadwo Kyeremanteng has said the government is considering decentralising development to encourage 1D1F in the various districts across the country.

According to him, if development is based only in bigger cities other parts of the country will lack economic benefits.

Addressing management and staff at HGL Farms near Ho during the visit by President Akufo-Addo, Mr. Kyeremateng stated: "This project is a perfect example of the one District one Factory that we have been talking about, hence the President will return to the region to officially commission."

“This is our inspection but at the appropriate time, the President will come again to commission it as one District one Factory initiative," during an inspection tour in the Adaklu District.

He added that HGL farms will be considered under the 1D1F policy to create job opportunities for Ghanaians.

The CEO of HGL, Senyo Hosi, said they hope to employ about 2,000 people when the project is fully operational.

HGL is an indigenous Ghanaian social business. The company is driven by the social impact of drawing more citizens into the production function by stimulating employment for less-skilled persons in a sustainable manner.
