Textile sector to provide 800 jobs in Swaziland

Two textiles firms in Swaziland are expected to create 800 jobs in the country soon to combat joblessness, one of the country’s leading newspaper has said.

The announcement was made by the Swaziland Investments Promotions Authority (SIPA) CEO Phumelele Dlamini in Mbabane.

Swaziland’s ministry of commerce, industry and trade and SIPA recently inaugurated the factory shells that would house the textile companies.

Dlamini said the factory shells were situated in Nhlangano and Matsanjeni, in the Shiselweni region, the Swazi Observer reported.

“We are expecting that these factory shells will provide job opportunities that will amount to 800. We expect 400 job opportunities from each of the factory shells. Government initially pumped Emalangeni 100 million ($8.3 million) into the factory shells projects, and then pumped in Emalangeni 17 million ($1.4 million) thereafter,” she told reporters in Mbabane.

Dlamini said the factory shells would be occupied by textile companies only. She encouraged business people, who would be working in those shells, to cooperate with the government and follow the rule of law when doing their businesses.

“We encourage business people to comply with all the laws they are expected to follow. They must make sure that all their working documents are in order.

She also appealed to workers to cooperate with their employers.

“We implore workers to work hard and cooperate with their employees so that they can establish a mutually beneficial working relationship with their employers,” she said. (SH)
