Ghana to be top African apparel manufacturing hub: Minister

Nov '17
Ghana will turn Africa’s leading apparel manufacturing hub after the trade and industry ministry implements the industrial transformation agenda, Alan John K Kyerematen, minister handling the portfolio, said recently at the launch of the Association of Ghana Apparel Manufacturers (AGAM). The sector will significantly transform the nation’s industry, he said.

AGAM is a business network and advocacy organization comprising 13 Ghanaian apparel businesses exporting more than $12 million worth of clothes each year and employs over 2,000 workers with the potential of growing its workforce to 20,000 employees by December 2018.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Export and Import Bank (Eximbank) has announced a $10-million investment support for apparel manufacturers in Ghana as part of its efforts to support the government’s industrialisation initiatives, according to media reports from Ghana. (DS)
