With a view to maintain the competitive footing of local textiles and garments industry, the government has started taking steps to restrict smuggling of textiles and garments products into the country.

It has ordered the Customs Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) and other security agencies for being heedful at the ports, and to arrest and destroy smuggled textiles and garment items.

Furthermore, it has also directed CEPS to ensure proper payment of duties and taxes from textile and garment importers to evade products dumping in the Ghanaian market, informed Mr. Mahama Ayariga, Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry.

He was speaking during his visit to the Volta Star Textiles Limited (VSTL) to get acquainted with the operations of the company. Unjust competition from cheap foreign products as well as smuggling is the major trouble for Ghanaian textiles and garments industry.

Moreover, high raw materials prices, irregular water and electricity supply are also the hurdles for the industry. The government is also putting in efforts to to allow the marketing of textiles and garment products in the neighboring markets.

Government will offer further support to the local cotton industry by providing required inputs at affordable prices to the farmers, for production improvement to offer sufficient amount of cotton to the local textiles and garments industry, said Mr. Ayariga.

Besides, government is taking measures to create more 30,000 jobs in this sector for the youth class, he informed, appealing the industry entrepreneurs to cooperate with the government for execution of such measures as these are the steps to boost up the industry.
