Ghana sets up task force to clamp down on textile piracy
Ghana’s ministry of trade and industry has set up a taskforce to clamp down on activities of textile pirates. The taskforce, which includes representatives from security agencies and the ministries of defence, trade and industry and national security, will increase border monitoring, particularly the eastern border at Aflao, and raid suspected warehouses.

It will, however, not monitor market centres.

The task force has representative from the customs division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), the Ghana Police Service, the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA), the registrar-general’s department, the Ghana Union of Traders Associations (GUTA) and local textile manufacturing companies.

At the inauguration of the task force in Accra recently, minister of trade and industry Alan Kyerematen urged the taskforce to fight piracy and smuggling in the textile industry with tact and commitment just like the war against illegal mining. (DS)
