The Ghanaian Government has invested a sum of 650,000 cedis in cotton sector of the country, thus creating some employment opportunities for unemployed youth in north-western part of the country.
 
The Government revamped the waning cotton industry in the northern region of the country through the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Deputy Upper West Regional Minister, Carle Caesar said while speaking at a regional outreach programme arranged by the Ministry of Trade and Industry in Wa.
 
Several agencies of the Ministry talked about the policies, programmes and projects they are working on, and also highlighted the benefit that the stakeholders would reap from these programs.
 
Mr. Caesar said since 2010, the Ghana Cotton Company and cotton cultivators in the northern region of the country are getting state support in the area of cultivation, and the farmers are being provided with cotton seeds, insecticides and fertilizers.
 
Stressing on the need for improving the value propositions of the agricultural produce for exports, he said it is vital for transformation of the economy. 
 
He urged the Government to convert the Tumu/Hamile access points into free zones to facilitate movement of goods to the Sahel regions. 
 
Speaking on behalf of the Trade and Industry Minister Hannah Tetteh, Chief Director of the Ministry, Nii Ansah Adjei said the outreach program launched by the Ministry well demonstrates the importance her ministry has attached to its stakeholders.
