An international conference on the textile industry was held recently in Lagos, the capital of Nigeria. Most of the delegates at the conference were of the unanimous opinion that a multi-pronged approach was necessary to handle the problems facing the sector.

They said that the government, stake holders including the owners and employees had a big role to play in bringing the industry out of the comatose state, with the government's role being the most fundamental of all.

The government needs to have the political will and readiness for a change, should formulate appropriate and stable policies and address the core issue of infrastructure development, was the firm opinion of a textile expert.

He added by saying that the government must not only understand the overall implications of the socio-economic losses presently incurred by the country, due to the comatose state of the textile industry, but also must be ready and determined to change the situation.

Mr Prem Malik, Chairman of Bombay Textile Research Institute, India, said that the government must give the textile sector priority status in such a way that it would be de-linked from others for a deserved priority attention and advised the government to tackle the issue of rampant smuggling on a serious note.

The Managing Director of Banquaires Facilities Limited, Mr. Felix Adeduro whose company organized the conference, urged the government to have a textile department, which could frame a textile policy and other strategies to revive the defunct textile industry.

Others at the conference also fired the government on the delay in releasing the N70 billion textile revival funds which was first proposed in 2006, which in the period from then till now, led to the closure of a number of textile mills and in the process created joblessness to thousands of workers.
