On Tuesday, 27th July 2021, I paid a surprised visit to Amenfi Farms Limited, a starch processing firm operating at Wassa Akropong in the Amenfi East Municipality.
It was a visit to ascertain the progress of operations and to also find out or elicit necessary information of concern for redress. This factory is operational under the 1D1F initiative, and it offers direct and indirect job opportunities for the youth.
I was impressed with the status of operations. I reiterated the government’s commitment to partnering with the private sector to ensure that small, medium, and large scale manufacturing companies operate effectively and efficiently in order to take full advantage of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA).
