Egypt to help local textile sector

The textile and garment industry in Rwanda will be developed by receiving help from Egypt, which plans to develop this industry by spreading related information and conducting various trainings.

During the ongoing workshop on the analysis of the industry's potential in Rwanda, the Deputy CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RBD), Clare Akamanzi announced this development.

This workshop will come out with a draft text, which will highlight necessary policies, strategies and programs to increase the competitiveness of textile and garment industry of Rwanda and is expected to have a significant social and economic impact in the country.

The industry is expecting to benefit from the guidance from Egypt as it exports 95 percent of its products to European countries and it could prove to be an example for the development of Rwanda Textile and Garments Industry, said Akamanzi.

Akamanzi acknowledged the low level of awareness of the potential the silk industry has in the country. The industry is still facing the problems such as lack of design skills, marketing and branding expertise.

To undertake a study on the textile and garment industry, an agreement had been signed last year by the then Rwanda Investment and Export Promotion Agency (RIEPA) with the ACP Business Climate Facility (BizClim).

The report of findings reveals that the further development of local silk industry would employ number of rural people, particularly women, and also help to develop market for other products.

Silk is not native to Rwanda, but in various regions of the country mulberry trees have been planted with a marginal level of success and the area under sericulture is estimated to grow from 15 to 3000 hectares.

The report suggests that there is a need to establish a strong network among government and organizations involved in silk industry to build a base for sound development of the sub-sector.
