Nigeria's first fashion, textile stakeholders' forum to be held in Lagos
Nov '11
Nigeria's first Fashion and Textile Stakeholders forum, being organized by Best of the World (B.O.W.), will be held this month in Lagos, the most populous conurbation in Nigeria.

All the concerned fashion and textile industry stakeholders would participate in the forum, which is intended at reviving the industry, aiming to generate newer employment opportunities and to boost the country's foreign exchange earnings from exports, B.O.W. said.

The organizers said the State government's support in encouraging the cluster system would not only prove helpful in enhancing the business of the investors, but would also influence the visitors to make use of fashion items and accessories like bags, shirts, beads, fabrics and shoes that are made in Nigeria. This, they added, would help in employment generation and in drawing more foreign exchange to the country.

Nigeria Textile Manufacturers Association (NTMA) and the Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON) have already extended their support to the B.O.W.'s initiative aimed at rejuvenating the country's clothing and textile industry.

Dr. Joseph Odumodu, SON Director General, said in order to regain its past glory, Nigerian textile and clothing industry needs support of one and all.

Director General of NTMA, Mr. Olarewaju Jaiyeola, said if properly harnessed, the textile and clothing industry has the capacity to once again breathe new life in the Nigerian economy, particularly through creation of a value chain stretching right from the cotton producers to the final consumer.

He further stated that Governments of some East African nations are already doing that, and vouched NTMA's complete support to the B.O.W.'s initiative.
