Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kwadow Kyeremanten has said on the floor of the House that Business promoters would determine the structure design for each factory under the “one district one factory”.

This the Minister indicated would be done taking into consideration the nature of process and technology required as well as the environmental condition within the vicinity of the factory.

He further indicated that, the One District One factory initiative is designed to be private sector led with the support of government through the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

Mr. Speaker, the private sector investors interested in the programme are setting up their own enterprise by taking advantage of the various incentives the government is offering under the programme.

Again to ensure that the structural design of the factories do not pose a threat to the survival of communities in and around the factories, the District implementation support team includes members of the Environmental Protection Agency, he said.

He further pointed out that, Food and Drugs Authority, District Planning Officers, Water and Sanitation Agency and Ghana Standards Authority, would help guide the structural design of these factories.

Member of Parliament for Buem, Daniel Kwasi Ashiamah wanted to know if there were, standardized structural design for the “One District One Factory” and who would be responsible for providing it.
