The One District One Factory Secretariat on the assumption of the Akufo-Addo government was instituted to facilitate the setting up of factories across the various districts in the country to put Ghana on the path of industrialization and self-reliance.

So far, the secretariat has overseen the establishment and operationalization of several factories across the nation with others also under construction.
