SADA and the China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC) have signed a MoU in this regard. For cultivation and processing of cotton, the main raw material for the factory, CNTAC had already purchased 5,000 acres of land.

The MoU was signed by ambassador Kwesi Quartey, secretary to the Ghana president and CNTAC vice-president Xu Yingxin, Ghanaian media reported.

He added that SADA is an initiative to facilitate the development of the Savannah Ecological Zone which is deprived to bridge the development gap between the area and the southern sector of the country. (RR)
