He said government was poised to eradicate the chunk unemployment canker, thereby constructing business resources centres to provide the needed assistance to entrepreneurs and business establishments.

This, together with the One District-One Factory (1D1F) initiative aimed at increasing job and employment opportunities for the youth to improve livelihoods and strengthen the economic sector.

Mr Kyeremateng said this when he accompanied President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to inaugurate a Business Resources Centre at Bechem in the Tano South Municipality of the Ahafo Region.

He explained that 67 of the business resources centres were being constructed with 37 already inaugurated, while the remaining would be ready for inauguration soon.

He said the Centres would not only serve as support and guide giving points for small and medium scale enterprises, but also create job avenues for unemployed Ghanaians.

It is a rural enterprise programme to ensure enhanced quality of products and services at the local level, he added.
