An Economic Advisor from the office of the President Dr Kwadwo Samuel Frimpong led the Japanese delegation to Akwatia.
He said government focuses on creating private partnerships which will create jobs for the growing unemployed youth.
The District Chief Executive (DCE) of Denkyembour District signed the MoU on behalf of the District.
It was witnessed by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Akwatia, Mercy Adu Gyamfi.
All stakeholders present were happy a project from the government initiative was to be implemented in the area.
