1D1F programme is being implemented by the Ministry of Trade and Industry under the leadership of Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen.
The factory which specializes in clay products (bricks and tiles) is expected to reduce the importation of clinker to the country upon completion.
During the visit of the project and upon interaction by the project coordinator, the President was enthused with the progress of work on the site especially as local raw materials are going to be used to produce durable products including bricks, pavers, roofing tiles and panels for the construction industry.
"Large deposit of clay at Tanoso, where the factory is located, places the enterprise in a competitive position to contribute positively towards the construction of affordable houses for Ghanaians, he noted.
Upon completion about 18,000 people especially the youth will gain an employment opportunity at Tanoso and its environs.
