Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia says government is in discussions with Cuba for the establishment of a Biolarvicide Factory at Savelugu in the Northern Region.
This will help control pests and mosquito transmitted diseases in the country and other West African countries.
Malaria and other mosquito-transmitted diseases have led to significant number of deaths in Ghana, and also account for billions of dollars in lost productivity in Africa.
Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia was speaking at a meeting at the Flagstaff House with a high powered Cuban delegation, led by the Vice President of the Council of State of Cuba, Mrs. Mercedes Lopez Acea.
