'Textile sector has potential to boost Zambia's growth'
Dec '16
The textile and leather sectors of Zambia have the potential to boost the country’s growth and contribute towards wealth creation, according to the Zambia government. However, Zambian minister of commerce trade and industry Margaret Mwanakatwe is of the opinion that more contribution is needed to accelerate manufacturing in these two industries.

On the last day of the 2016 Leather and Textile Expo held in Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, Mwanakatwe said that this expo can help accelerate the progress of these sectors in the country.

The expo was a platform for the textile and leather sectors to form collaborations and partnerships and will help these industries become market leaders on regional as well as international levels, said a leading Zambian daily quoting Mwanaktwe.

The minister also said that the support given to the expo proves that the Zambian government and other partners value the country’s textile industry.

The theme of the 2016 expo held in Lusaka was ‘Enhancing Competiveness of Leather and Textile sectors through value addition’. (KD)
