The One District One Factory (1D1F) initiative is the vision of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to change the nature of Ghana’s economy from one which is dependent on the import and export of raw materials to one that is focused on manufacturing, value addition and export of processed goods.
The initiative, as proposed by President Akufo-Addo, is private sector-led. The government creates the necessary conducive environment for businesses to access funding from financial institutions and other support services from government agencies to establish factories.
