According to him, Elmina will soon become a hub for the fishing industry in the country.
Addressing chiefs and people of Elmina yesterday, during the commissioning of the fish processing plant, President John Dramani Mahama explained that the project which was funded by the Exim Bank of India was aimed at transforming the fishing sector in Ghana.
“This fish processing plant is very important to fishermen in this area. This is because it has a processing facility and packing plant. So the fishermen can process their fish and package them nicely for the market,” he opined.
President Dramani Mahama further explained that the project will not only serve fishermen but fishmongers as well.
The plant also has cold rooms where fishermen can store the excess catch and sell later.
