Nigeria has conceived an integrated textile and garment park to end the annual loss worth $6 billion due to import of garment and textile goods, the government announced recently. It had already partnered with the Kaduna state to establish the park in the Funtua local government area in Katsina state. The project is expected to be executed within 24 months.

Minister of state for industry, trade and investment Mariam Katagum announced the plan during a recent meeting with deputy governor of Katsina state Alhaji Mannir Yakubu.

The project aims to revitalise the textile industry and boost production of cotton in Nigeria. The project will be a public-private partnership.

The Funtua Integrated Textile and Garment Park is one of the six priority projects under the Nigeria Industrial Revolution Plan of the federal government, she said.

The park would aggregate cotton from over 800,000 farmers from northern Nigeria.
