Donald Dzameshie Highlights On Investment And Business Potential In The Akatsi South Constituency.

Akatsi south constituency has a vast array of investment opportunities available to be exploited by private investors. About 75% of the population of the district work in agriculture.

The land in the constituency is well suited for commercial farming. The main crops cultivated are maize, cassava, sweet potato, cowpeas, groundnuts and vegetables. The land is low lying and can support mechanised farming. Two agricultural companies in the constituency at present produce a variety of vegetables of Asian origin under irrigation and export about 25,260 kg annually.

Perennial crops like oil palm, mango, cashew, coconut, black berry and pineapple are also cultivated. Cattle production is carried out on a large scale in some parts of the constituency. Sheep, goats and pigs are reared throughout the constituency but not on large commercial basis, even though great potential exists for this. The same situation applies to poultry farming.
 
There are large tracts of land and man-made dams at Akatsi, Ave-Dakpa, Atsiekpvi, Ave-Afidenyigba, Geifa, Lume Alugakope, Ashiagborvi and Dzalele, Ayitekofe, which guarantee water for irrigation.
 
The dams at Akatsi and Atsiekpu are currently being used for irrigation. Current manufacturing industries are small scale or cottage industries, centred around carpentry, block making, basketry and mat weaving.
 
The constituency has large clay deposits used locally for poultry. Feasibility studies show that the commercial exploitation life- span ranges between 85 and 2,386 years. Granite deposits at Ave-Hevi, Hedavi, Ashiagborvi and Torve can facilitate the establishment of quarries to support the construction industry.

Since raw materials are available locally, the cost of setting up a brick and tile manufacturing industry or a factory for the production of ceramic products would be low.
 
Sugar cane is cultivated and distilled into alcohol, known locally as Akpeteshie, while palm wine is also tapped from palm trees and distilled into alcohol. Indeed, the raw materials for distilling akpeteshie are readily available in the district as the soil is good for the cultivation of both sugar cane and oil palm.
 
Akpeteshie is a key component in a lot of alcoholic beverages produced in Ghana. Akatsi has an identifiable and growing non-traditional export sector that can be developed. These include bee keeping, snail farming and cashew cultivation.
 
Tourism Attractions

There are a lot of potential tourist sites, which need to be developed. The main attractions in the constituency however include the following:
 
Xavi Bird-watching & River-tours Project
The above project is a Community-based Eco-Tourism Project which is a collaborative effort between the Akatsi District Assembly (i.e. The Wetlands Department) the Nature Conservation Research Centre (NCRC) Accra, the Ghana
 
Tourist Board (GTB) Ho, the US Peace Corps-Ghana and the Project Community of Xavi. The Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) and the US Forestry Service are now assisting the project.
 
The constituency has already sunk in some amount of resources including the manufacture of a Canoe for boat tours and bird watching, manufacture of direction Sing/Notice boards, and the provision of accommodation at the Guest House No. I for the US Peace Corps Volunteer.
 
Klu Adela Museum.

The above project is also a collaborative project between the Assembly, NCRC, GTB and the Klu family of Akatsi (M.O.U singed on file) the Assembly has already committed some funds towards the realization of the project objectives including rehabilitating a room at the Klu family house - Akatsi for the safe custody of the Cultural Artifacts; Acquisition of land for the Cultural Village
Complex, funding of the Documentation and compilation of the History of Klu "Adela".
 
The Project Proposal has been submitted to the UNESCO Country Director for study and approval for funding.
 
Traditional Festivals

The Traditional Festivals celebrated in the constituency are Hogbeza, Agbeliza, Denyaza, Ameshikpe and Ebliza festivals. Hogbeza is celebrated during the second week of December each year to commemorate the migration of the Avenor people from their original home, Avenor-Ketukpe in the Republic of Togo.
 
The Avenorpedo community celebrates Agbeliza. It is celebrated in the first week of August to recognize the importance of cassava in the life of the people.
 
The main feature is the exhibition of cassava products namely, gari, tapioca, yakayaka, chips, doughnuts and bread. The best cassava farmer is honoured at a durbar of chiefs and people.
 
Denyaza is a festival celebrated locally in a number of communities, usually during Easter or Christmas. The main features of these festivals are reconciliation rituals, purification of clan shrines and a congress of the chiefs and people.
 
The finale is always a grand durbar, which is usually addressed by the President or His representative. The traditional drumming and dancing are a common feature of such festivals and ot all other occasions. 
 
These occasions are for the coming together of citizens of the area especially those residents in other towns and cities.
 
They are occasions for renewing allegiance to the leadership of the people, mainly the paramount chiefs of the area and to showcase the culture of the people. During these festivals, completed development projects are commissioned, and development plans for the next year discussed and adopted.
