Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo recently directed all public agencies to procure garments and textiles from domestic producers. At a recent event, he said one of the key objectives of his government was to use the pandemic challenge as an opportunity to inspire the expansion of domestic capabilities and deepen self-reliance.

“To win, we want to rely on the things we make and grow, not on the things we import. Indeed, the pandemic has disrupted the global supply chain, but it is also opening up opportunities for us to enhance our industrial, productive capacity, increase our agricultural output to engender our food security, and, generally, boost Ghanaian exports to markets in the continent and beyond,” he said.

“With the support of the government, our, hitherto, dormant domestic garment factories have, over the past few months, been revived, and have been able to produce, currently, fifteen million face masks and other personal protective equipment (PPEs) for frontline health workers, and for all those, i.e. students, teaching and non-teaching staff, involved in the partial reopening of our junior and senior high schools, universities and other tertiary institutions,” he was quoted as saying by an official release.

This has saved the nation millions of dollars in foreign exchange, and, at a time of job losses, has created jobs for thousands of people, especially young people, he added.
