    Background: THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE AND VICE-CHAIRMAN OF GHANA'S NATIONAL LIBERATION COUNCIL, MR HARLLEY, TOOK PART IN MEETINGS ON THURSDAY (29 FEBRUARY) WHICH MAY POSSIBLY LEAD TO DEVELOPING A SCHEME WHICH WOULD EVENTUALLY SATISFY THE WHILE OF GHANA'S RICE REQUIREMENTS. MR. HARLLEY WAS AT ATIAVI IN THE VOLTA REGION, AND INAUGURATING A STUDY OF THE KETA - AYU LAGOON WITH THE HOPES OF MULTI PURPOSE DEVELOPMENT OF THE 40 THOUSAND ACRES OF SWAMP-LAND.

    THE STUDIES ARE TO MADE UNDER AN AGREEMENT SIGNED THREE WEEKS AGO BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF GHANA AND A WEST GERMAN CONSULTING FIRM, WAKUTI. MR. HARLLEY WAS GREETED ON ARRIVAL BY MEMBERS OF THE VOLTA REGIONAL COMMITTEE OF ADMINISTRATION, LED BY THE CHAIRMAN, LT-COLONEL YEBOAH. AMONG OTHERS PRESENT WERE OFFICIALS OF WAKUTI AND THE WEST GERMAN EMBASSY IN ACCRA.

    IN COLONEL YEBOAH'S OPENING ADDRESS, HE POINTED OUT THAT THE NATION'S WEALTH DEPENDED PRIMARILY ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF GHANA'S AGRICULTURE. THE WEST GERMAN CHARGE D'AFFAIRES, MR. JUR DIETER SCHAAD, ECHOED THIS THEME IN HIS SPEECH, AND PRAISED THE N.L.C.'S EFFORT TO ENSURE ABUNDANT FOOD SUPPLIES FOR GHANA.

    MR. HARLLEY SAID THE SCHEME HAD BEEN UNDER CONSIDERATION SINCE JULY 1966, BUT OWING TO THE ECONOMIC SITUATION, IT HAD TAKEN SOME TIME TO OBTAIN CONSULTANTS FOR THE STUDIES REQUIRED. PROFESSOR MOSOYNI OF HUNGARY AND MR. GALL, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF WAKUTI, HAD EVENTUALLY UNDERTAKEN THIS TASK, WHICH WILL INCLUDE STUDY OF IRRIGATION, FLOOD CONTROL, WATER-SUPPLY, TRANSPORTATION AND RECREATION. MR. HARLLEY APPEALED TO THE PEOPLE TO GIVE THE CONSULTANTS EVERY ASSISTANCE; THEIR HELP MIGHT MEAN THE RECLAMATION OF LAND THAT HAS LAID WASTE FOR MANY DECADES.
