A Ghana-based non-governmental organisation, Constellar Institute for Creative Studies (CICS), is aiming to facilitate the establishment of 350 factories across the ten regions of the country in two years.

The initiative is a special incubator programme, known as Industrial Empowerment Seminar. It is expected to ride on the shoulders of government’s plan to embark on massive industrialisation.

CICS and its partners through the initiative, are expected to create 7, 000 jobs over the period.

The programme will be executed with anticipated local and foreign partnership support, including government’s National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan, CICS explains.

An initial 50 factories are expected to be set up in the Ashanti Region first, whilst the rest will be rolled out from next year onwards.

Focal groups under the Constellar Incubation Programme will serve as architects of the factories for the manufacture of a wide range of products.

Young entrepreneurs will receive industrial training to be run nationwide.

Co-founder, Professor Ramses Akosah, says the initiatives are being championed within the context of government’s One District, One Factory Policy.

He says the project will reduce importation and positively affect the economy.
