'Patronize Made-in-Ghana fabrics', urges Minister

22
Sep '09
In order to establish the identity of Ghanaian culture and to promote it globally, Mr. Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, Eastern Regional Minister appealed Ghanaians to patronize the National Friday wear program.

The Minister also asked the heads of government institutes and departments to promote the program at their institutes and departments. The appeal has been made in a keynote address read out during the launch of Municipal National Friday wear program.

“Promoting Made-in-Ghana Goods, with special emphasis on textiles and garments was the theme of the launching event. In order to develop a strategy to resuscitate the textile industry, the government has made this appeal, said the Minister.

Around 25,000 workers were working in the industry from 1960 to 1975, said Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo. To develop their businesses, textile manufacturers were suggested to trim down the cost of their goods.

Initiating trade programs to make local textile manufacturers more competitive and frame out plans to fuel demand for Made-in-Ghana products was prudent for the government, added Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo.

There are pressures on managers and employers in integrating new information technologies into all phases of business operations, in this dramatically changing business world, in order to boost the effectiveness, efficiency and customer satisfaction, he said.
