May '10
According to Mahama Ayariga, Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, the government, with an eye on generating employment opportunities for the youth, was firm to resurrect the non-operational Jute Factory at Atonsu in Kumasi.

He informed that, the factory had turned non-operational since 1991 and further stated that, it was now necessary to revive the factory to help augment the production of sacks, thereby lending a hand to the cocoa industry.

He also stated that, his Ministry together with the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning was continuously initializing efforts to acquire the tools and equipments that would be required by the factory.

The announcement was made during the Minister's recent visit to the Ashanti region, while inspecting the archaic factory.

In addition Ayariga also said that, the government intended to support farmers so that they could cultivate more Kenaf, a key input required for manufacturing jute sacks, to feed the factory.

He also extended a guarantee that, the government would safeguard the domestic industries, mainly the small and medium-scale enterprises, by providing them with credit facilities, training programmes and other means required by them to take up the best practices to boost trades.
