A deal for a Turkish company to establish a ‘One-District-One Factory’ project in the Shai Hills area was also finalised. According to reports, the Ghanaian trade and industry ministry, under its industrial transformation plan, selected garment and textiles as one of the strategic sectors to generate employment and foreign exchange.
