Ghana government has extended support for the establishment of a textile factory in the North Savanna Ecological Zone (NSEZ) of the country. Appreciating the initiative of Savanna Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) to set up the textile factory, Ghana president John Mahama said that the country has potential to further develop its textile business.

The new textiles factory will be built by SADA, in collaboration with China National Textiles and Apparel Council (CNTAC), in Kumasi city, one of the largest metropolitan areas in Ghana.

Mahama extended his support for the Kumasi based project when a 10-member delegation from CNTAC visited him in Accra after signing two Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) between SADA and CNTAC. One of the MoUs included development of a framework for the establishment of cotton and textiles project in NSEZ, Ghana news media reported.

Ghana government had established SADA to develop Savannah Ecological Zone and SADA is authorised to lead the comprehensive development of Ghana's savannah zone and represent government in joint ventures, said Mahama. Identifying the potential of the country in cotton production, Mahama said that CNTAC cotton and textiles project is just the start for big things to happen in the industry.

This project can become a gateway to Economic Community of West African States, said vice president of CNTAC, Xu Yingxin during the delegation's meeting with Mahama.
