The President, Nana Akufo-Addo says the co-operation between Ghana and Cuba is being extended to the eradication of malaria.
According to him, “soon, through a joint venture agreement with Labiofam S.A., a bio-larvicide factory will be established in Savelugu.”
He indicated that “an agreement is also being reached for the sale of Ghana’s cocoa liquor to the Stella S.A. chocolate factory in Cuba, and we want to examine the possibility of Stella S.A. establishing a manufacturing facility in Ghana.
” The President said this on Thursday when he was taken on a tour of the operations of Stella S.A. Chocolate factory, and Labiofam S.A.
Amongst others, the proposal “for a bioproducts manufacturing plant” was agreed on there.
Addressing the officials of the company, President Akufo-Addo noted that Ghana spends a lot of money in the fight against malaria, and that is why “when I came here as Foreign Minister, in 2006, I heard about you, and took you to Ghana.”
Anxious to get on with the construction of the bio-larvicide factory in Savelugu, President Akufo-Addo noted that it will be a very fitting testimony to the 60 years of relations between Ghana and Cuba.
