Akufo-Addo Wiawso road

At Bia, President Akufo-Addo cut the sod for the construction of a 1,000 metric tonne pre-fabricated warehouse, under the one-district-one-warehouse initiative. 

The warehouse, when completed, is expected not only to reduce post-harvest losses, but will also motivate farmers to increase production, create market linkages, stabilize prices for farmers and increase their incomes.

In addition, this intervention will create employment, ensure a continuous flow of agriculture produce in the market within the locality and across the country. 
The warehouse has ancillary facilities such as an office and laboratory, chain-link fencing with gatehouse, a water system, and a solar powered grain dryer, amongst others.

In the Western North Region, a total of 5 warehouses are to be constructed in Bekwai in the Bibiani-Awhiaso-Bekwai district; Abonedua in SefwiWiawso; Juaboso in the Juaboso district; Essam in Bia West district; and Dadieso in Suaman.
