The minister for Special Development Initiatives, Hawa Koomson has assured Ghanaians of revamping the Bolgatanga meat factory in the Upper East region which has been abandoned since 1995. The factory, she says, will create employment and alleviate poverty in the region.
The Bolgatanga meat factory will be revamped soon to create employment and alleviate poverty in the upper East region. Madam Koomson who is on a 7days tour to the SADA zone said, the factory is best positioned for the realization of the one district, one factory agenda of the NPP led administration. The factory was built in 1961, started operations in 1965 but folded up in 1995 owing to managerial lapses.
However, the minister for special development initiatives, Hawa Koomson has identified the factory to be a key economic venture in transforming local and national economies. Sited in the northern region, the minister noted, per the location of the factory, raw materials are available to feed the factory and ready market also available.
The factory is one of those captured under the SADA master plan as an industrial park and is looking for investors to realize the industrialization and mechanization dream for the SADA zone. The minister shares the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority’s dream and said they will work together to bring investors to revamp the factory.
