Trades Minister Woos Turkish Manufacturing Company To Ghana


The Minister of Trade & Industry, Mr. Alan Kyerematen, has closed a deal for a Turkish company to establish a One-District-One Factory project in the Shai Hills area.

This came up when the Minister led a Ghanaian delegation to the Turkey-Africa Economic and Business Forum. Mr. Kyerematen also used the opportunity to have series of meetings with investors from Turkey, including the Executives of Turkish Garment and Textiles Chamber.

This is because under the Industrial Transformation Plan being implemented by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, garment and textiles are strategic sectors selected with special focus to create massive jobs for Ghanaians and to generate foreign exchange through export.

In this regard, a delegation from the Chamber will be visiting Ghana to prospect for partnerships in the sector.

The two-day forum which commenced on Wednesday, October 10 and expected to end on October 11, 2018, is dubbed, “Invest in a Sustainable Future Together: Turkey and Africa”. The forum provides a platform for the business circles from African countries to develop new partnerships which envisions to build together, produce together, sell what’s produced together and share the profit.

Mr. Kyerematen was accompanied by Ambassador Salma Frances Mancell Egala and Dr John Asiedu, an official of Ghana’s Embassy in Turkey.
