School uniform programme kicks off, to help industry

05
Oct '09
The initial stages of the initiative to provide free school uniforms to students and at the same time revive the depressed textile sector has taken off with a mill in Ghana preparing to process the huge volume of orders.

The government had promised to provide school uniforms produced domestically rather than import them from China in order to resuscitate the beleaguered textile sector of the country and also save valuable foreign exchange.

The Vice-President on instructions from the President had issued a notification to this effect. Printex Ghana Limited has been chosen to print the fabric needed for the school uniforms.

This decision of the government will help provide re-employment to about 80-100 workers of Printex who had been retrenched in the past and in the process also help save jobs of nearly 450 workers working currently.

This could mean good news for Printex as it is supposed to be a rolling programme and more orders for school uniform fabrics can be expected, in the future years too. For the current year Printex will supply 5.5 million yards of school uniform fabric.
