Addressing the nation on Thursday, Ken Ofori-Atta said the government is pursuing key interventions such as 1D1F, GhanaCARES, and the YouStart programmes

The Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has on Thursday (24 March) said the government remains steadfast in its commitment to deepening Ghana’s economic fundamental transformation.

“Government remains resolute and committed to entrenching the structural transformation of our economy in the long term. We are aggressively pursuing key interventions such as 1D1F, GhanaCARES and the YouStart programmes to improve our ability to locally produce more goods and optimise the opportunities AfCFTA offers us,” he said.

Addressing the nation on measures being taken to curb the economic challenges, Ofori-Atta said, “It is important that as a country we will reduce our dependency on import and increase local production.”

He added: “Public institutions are reminded of government’s polices to buy locally produced goods.”

Ofori-Atta said to ensure quality jobs for our people, Ghanaians must reassess their preferences and use locally manufactured goods.

The One District One Factory (1D1F) initiative was launched by the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government to change the nature of Ghana’s economy from one which is dependent on import and export of raw material to one which is focused on manufacturing, value addition and export of processed goods.
