Textile industry calls for Govt help

13
Apr '07
Despite the fact that Uganda has one of the best cotton grades, the textile industry has been able to draw least number of investors in last 20 years.

The main reason for lack of interest among investors is unqualified textile workers.

Dependence on second hand clothing and import of inferior textile goods is hindering the growth of local industry. Government should curb export of cotton and spin it locally to attract overseas customers for yarn and fabrics.

Government should also pay heed to make policy and create a favorable atmosphere for investment in the textile industry.

In order to attract investment taxes on imported textile machinery and accessories should be removed.

Call of the time is that textile experts should be encouraged to form Textile and Clothing Association with a governing Textile Council for development and research in the country.
