Mr Iddrisu made the call on Wednesday when Mr Ian Lee, the Centre Director of International Enterprise (IE), Singapore, visited him at his office in Accra.
He said as a lower middle income country, there is the need for investors to invest in the manufacturing industry for the growth of the economy.
He promised that government would give two -year tax incentive to any company that would invest in the agro-processing industry in the Northern, Upper East, Upper West and Central regions.
“Ghana is a destination of choice for business because of the existence of peace and economic stability,” he said.
Mr Lee said IE is a government agency with the objective of driving Singapore’s external economy.
He said IE’s office in Ghana aims to be Singapore’s window to the ECOWAS sub-region to promote and facilitate economic partnerships on a governmental and private sector levels.
Mr Lee commended Ghana for the peace and stability and promised to bring more investors from Singapore to invest in the agro-processing industry.
