The initiative has spurred 321 projects, comprising 211 new large-scale factories and 110 expanded businesses, covering 54% of districts nationwide.

He said these business promoters have so far invested in one hundred and forty-two (142) districts across the country, across all sixteen (16) regions, and achieving fifty-four percent (54%) district coverage.

The aim is a 1D1F project in every district, contributing to the creation of 170,000 jobs within six years.

While incentives like duty exemptions were initially provided, none have been granted since 2021.
