Ghana forms textile import management body
The Government of Ghana recently constituted a textile import management body to oversee textile imports, according to trade and industry minister Alan Kyerematen. Vetting of designs, management of quantities will be among its the responsibilities of the body and it will also act as a single sourcing agency for all imports of wax prints, he said.

It will be mandatory for all importers to place their orders through this agency, the minister said at a town hall meeting with textile workers, who were sensitised on the implementation of the Textile Industry Reforms Programme.

A Textiles Anti-piracy Taskforce has been formed to monitor markets and ensure due diligence, media reports in Ghana quoted the minister as saying.

The steps are intended to protect the Ghanaian industry from fake imports, he clarified.

Some policies in the pipeline to enhance the competitiveness of the local textiles industry include introduction of tax stamp for locally-manufactured and genuinely-imported textiles and starting a designated entry corridor. (DS)
