Confiscated smuggled textiles to be destroyed

Apr '10
From now on, seized smuggled textiles would be destroyed, either by burning or by any other possible means. This is one of the measures that were decided upon, at a meet held few days back at the Ministry of Trade and Industry, to reduce illegal trade, save the economy and industry, as well as protect the industry from lay-offs.

The destruction of the seized forged and smuggled textile products will be undertaken amidst representatives of various organizations, such as, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Ghana Standards Board (GSB), Police, Customs, Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS), the Textile, Garments and Leather Workers Union (TEGLU), manufacturers of textiles and the media.

A task force of the representatives of textile manufacturing companies, CEPS, TEGLU and the police would be formed to execute the destruction process efficiently. Also, in order to make it easier for CEPS to restrain smuggling and duplicating of textile designs, an official urged the textile producers to register their designs.

It is said that if this step is put into action in the correct manner, then it will help revive the textile industry and prevent closure of textile factories, more specifically, the eventual collapse of the industry.
