The Government of the Federation of Bosnia & Herzegovina is preparing a strategy for the development of the textile and clothing industry in the country.
 
At present, the textile, garment, leather and footwear industry in Bosnia & Herzegovina employs about 22,000-25,000 people and the new 20-year plan aims to double the number of workers working in the sector by 2032, Sarajevo Times reported.
 
The draft document for the development of the textiles and clothing industry in the Federation has been prepared by the Ministry of Energy, Mining and Industry, in consultation with the Chamber of Commerce of the Bosnia & Herzegovina and representatives of several domestic companies engaged in manufacturing of textiles and apparels.
 
Mr. Erdal Trhulj, Minister of Energy, Mining and Industry, said the action plan would have all well-defined goals for the development of the textile, clothing, leather and footwear industry of the country, as it one of those manufacturing industries in the country that continually shows an increase in production as well as the number of employees.
 
Outlining the plan at the Chamber of Commerce, the Minister said the increase in output in textile and clothing sector has been higher than the average rise in total industrial production in the country during the past few years.
 
He added that the number of employees working in the country’s textile, garment, leather and footwear sector has risen from 16,800 in 2006 to 21,500 in 2011.
 
The draft proposal needs to be ratified by the Government of Bosnia & Herzegovina through a Parliamentary procedure, before it is implemented.
