Kenya to allow textile firms in EPZ's to sell in local market
01
Feb '17
Kenya is undertaking measures that include allowing textile companies in the Export Promotion Zones (EPZ’s), to sell up to 20 per cent of their production in the domestic market, without paying duties. This policy is being put in place to boost local textile production, by encouraging domestic sales of textiles and meet an increasing local demand.

“We want Kenyan citizens to have access to high quality products that are sold in overseas markets, which is the reason for introducing the policy change” minister of industry, trade and cooperatives Adan Mohamed added during the launch of the progress report on textile and garment sector.

The report informs that the country’s textile and clothing exports have risen to $415 million at the end of 2016.

“Domestic producers are under pressure due to the import of large volumes of second-hand clothing, which however, will reduce once there is a rise in local production,” the minister observed. (AR)
