Grace Jeanet Mason

The South African high commissioner to Ghana, Grace Jeanet Mason, has said her country is ready to adopt  Ghana’s One District One Factory (1D1F) programme to enhance industralisation at the district level.

Mason said the 1D1F programme provides a great opportunity for a thorough industrialisation drive.

She said South Africa will continue to collaborate with Ghana to improve bilateral trade under the AfCFTA.

Speaking on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Monday (31 October), Mason said, “… when the president [Ramaphosa] was here [Ghana] in December, we had conversations on the successes that we see as South Africa in the One District One Factory (1D1F).”

“That is something, that we as South Africa, will then adopt as well to look at our district level, how we continue to industrialise because that is part of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).”

The high commissioner said South Africa will continue to leverage Ghana’s comparative advantage in agriculture for the growth of the continent.

“So those are the comparative advantages and opportunities that we will leverage, amidst the current economic situation,” she added.
