Government of Ghana would support the textile manufacturing sector to create more job opportunities, said Dr Ekow Spio Garbrah, minister of trade and industry, Ghana news agency reported.

While touring the Tema Free Zones enclave, Garbrah recommended the manufacturing industries to come up with appropriate growth orientated strategies with their analysis, while the government creates the atmosphere required for them to flourish.

The government is extending its support to invest in the local textile industries and promote it in the international market. The ministry is also working to revamp the dormant textile manufacturing companies to make Ghana an export- rather than import-oriented nation.

Garbrah expressed his disappointment at the deprived state of the textile and garment industries in the enclave. He requested the free zone industry operators to see the ministry of trade and industry as a partner, keen to help them overcome their challenges.

Recently, speaking at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Ghana Textile Printing (GTP) company, Kweku Ricketts Hagan, the deputy minister of trade and industry said, that the government is determined to revive the textile industry to produce more for its exports, to make it an export oriented country.
