India and the Ghana government have reached an agreement to reactivate the Komenda Sugar Factory soon, after three years of negotiations initiated by Dr. Joseph Samuel Annan, Deputy of Trade and Industry.
Consequently, a four-member Indian sugarcane and sugar production experts were on Saturday, introduced to the Komenda community at a durbar at Komenda in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) Municipality.
The experts, led by Mr Shashank Shapre, presented a video on sugarcane plantation and production to sensitize community leaders and stakeholders in the community to the prospects of contemporary sugar industry.
India is one of the world’s leaders in the industry and the presentation was at giving the community an insight into the industry to whip their interest on the reactivation of the sugar plantation processing project in the area.
Mr Nintin Wagn, a mechanical engineer of the Indian team, said the project would provide direct employment for 400 people with over 2,000 farmers benefiting.
The Komenda Sugar Factory collapsed in 1983.
