“The initial planning never properly integrated the supplies of raw materials into the project … Arrangements were made to supply the factory with raw materials,” he added.
The $ 35 million Komenda Sugar factory, built from a facility at India’s Exim bank, has not been in operation since it went into operation in 2016.
The collapse was due to technical challenges and setbacks.
