'Curb fake textile imports at border' – Ghana retailers
21
Dec '11
The Ghanaian Government has been called upon by the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis Cloth Sellers Association (CSA) to tighten security at borders of the country to curb illegal imports of textiles into the country.

As claimed by the association members', enhanced security at country's land, air and water access points would reduce flow of foreign textiles in domestic Ghanaian markets.

Besides, the association members even contended that as vendors they purchase wax prints for sale from domestic markets only and hence they cannot be held liable for the influx of foreign textiles on the domestic market.

They claimed that rather than pinpointing at them, the authorities should strengthen security at the entry points like ports and borders from where such foreign textiles enter the country.

The association stated that it was astonished by the unexpected raid on its members who were not warned of the action and urged that their confiscated wax print textiles should be given back to them as they have taken loans to buy these textiles.
