UNIDO to help uplift cotton, textile & garment sector

The Nigerian cotton farmers as well as textile and garment stakeholders will soon be given training by United Nation Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) through its South-South Initiative.

This capacity building programme is expected to help in creating new job opportunities for the people, further enhancing the business and find ways of increasing productivity and generating overseas revenues in textile units along with boosting cotton processing sector.

UNIDO will also hold similar training sessions in nearly ten other cotton producing countries in Sub Saharan Africa. The nations include Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, Mali, Senegal, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania and Zambia.

The main purpose behind organizing this programme on a massive scale is to make sure that there is continuous competitiveness in the cotton, textile and garment industry of African countries, through South-South cooperation with India and China.

As it is believed that the cotton and textile industry in China and India is more advanced in comparison to Africa. So, the African countries can benefit from the transfer of equipment, technology and other related product from these two nations.

The cotton-producing countries in Africa export most of their cotton fibre directly without doing any kind of value addition. Although the prices are competitive, African cotton and textile companies are unable to meet the challenges of international market in a quota-free cotton market.

Experts related to this sector anticipate that this UNIDO programme will help the textile and garment industry of the region to a great extant.
