Ghana to set up equipment hub for apparel sector
23
Jan '18
As part of efforts to seek ways to improve market access for Ghana’s textile industry under the US African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) will establish an equipment hub as the tools needed for accurate measurement are expensive for manufacturers. GSA would also make dressmakers understand the importance of measurement.

This was announced by GSA director general Alex Dodoo at a recent stakeholders meeting. A lot of Ghana’s activities related to AGOA have been more technical, which did not transform into business, he said.

Since the introduction of AGOA in 2000, Ghana has been unable to make effective utilisation of the benefits from the preferential scheme to expand businesses, create jobs, and promote entrepreneurship. The United States renewed AGOA in 2015 till 2025.

A key factor inhibiting access to AGOA was lack of adherence to standards and GSA, as the national metrology institute, has the ability to support industry to adhere to world class standards, a news agency from Ghana quoted Dodoo as saying.

Another crucial issue discussed at the meeting was of size to meet the demands of international buyers. (DS)
