Govt calls on citizens to save domestic textile industry

Daniel Appau-Ohyeamang, chief Executive of the Asante-Mampong Municipal, had addressed the Ghanaians to share the responsibility of helping the domestic textile industry survive by supporting their goods.

Ohyeamang believes that, by lending government support to the textile goods, the textile producing sector will be able to provide employment, thereby, increasing the nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

In addition, he also said that, the textile industry has immense potential to contribute hugely to the development of the nation's economy and therefore it should be safeguarded against the inflow of low-priced foreign imports.

Ohyeamang made these statements during the inauguration of municipal, Everyday Wear, function organised at Asante-Mampong.

The function was organised by the Trade and Industry Ministry with the funds of Akosombo Textiles Limited (ATL), Printex, and Ghana Textiles Products (GTP). These industries too have collaborated with the government to build interest in 'made-in-Ghana' tagged products so as to revive and renew the textile and apparel industry.

Ohyeamang also lamented on the country's taste for imported apparels and dresses, most of which have been unsuitable for tropical climate. During the function, various associations and industries were urged to purchase domestically manufactured goods so as to market the domestic textiles and clothing.

Ben Peasah, Director, Domestic Trade and Distribution, Ministry of Trade and Industry, also firmly assured of promoting the domestically crafted textile goods. Security agencies were called upon by him to prevent the entry of illicit textile products from neighbouring nations.
