African textile body ACTIF gains IAF membership

Dec '13
The IAF is proud to have ACTIF as its newest association member. ACTIF stands for African Cotton Textiles Industry Federation and represents the national associations and Private Industries in 24 African Countries.

It is proud, that with this membership from Africa, now all continents are represented in its membership. True to its name, ACTIF is very active in promoting the emerging African apparel and textile chain.

In what IAF has dubbed the 2nd phase post MFA sourcing shifts production in Africa in on the increase and moving beyond the traditionally strong garment producing countries as Mauritius and Madagascar. Although in absolute terms apparel production in Sub Sahara Africa is currently not large, growth is robust and the expectation is that global market shares will continue to grow.

ACTIF's IAF membership will help to extend its already large international network and give it an even firmer place in the global community of apparel associations. For other IAF members, based on the 'members help members' principle African apparel industry will be more accessible.
