Nigeria's Kano state plans 44 garment centres
02
Mar '13
The Government of Kano State in Nigeria has decided to set up a garment production centre at each of its 44 Local Government Areas (LGAs), and has allocated a sum of N 1.76 billion for the same.
 
During his meeting with an Indian delegation visiting Kano, Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso said the state government intends to transform the agricultural supply stores in the LGAs to garment production centres, so as to use the stores more effectively to tap the unexploited potential of the local garment industry, alongside encouraging technology transfer and ensuring enhanced employment generation.
 
Mr. Kwankwaso said during his recent visit to India, he got in touch with several investors and also visited some garment factories to secure technical expertise and equipments for the garment manufacturing centres and craft schools that are proposed to be set up in LGAs.
 
The Governor said owing to globalization it has now become possible to upgrade standards by learning from experiences of other countries.
 
He said he visited India to gain from the country’s experience in the garment sector, and utilize the same to tap the opportunities coming up in the domestic market.
 
He added that the setting up of garment centres would generate good job opportunities in the state, which has high redundancy ratio. He was optimistic that the youth in the state, particularly those engaged in tailoring, would grab the new opportunity to move ahead in the textile-apparel value chain.
