He recounted that the assembly lost an amount ranging from US$ 5,000,000.00 to US$ 2 million years ago based on not meeting the population requirement from the World Bank to be given to some municipalities for developmental projects.

The MCE expressed mixed feelings in revenue generated by the Assembly as targets set were not achieved due to the ravaging effects of the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that distorted economic activities from March this year.

He explained that Shaba Company Limited that has been in the production of gas cookers and stoves, basins, nails among others had commenced minor operation, whereas Kwahu Roots and Fruits Processing Company Limited and Appah Farms that would be in the production of ginger drinks, ginger powder, cassava, and yam powder, and poultry processing respectively were in advanced stages with the installation of equipment.
