Interview: Ghana to leverage strong ties with China to boost textiles, garments industry: officials
Ghana would leverage on its robust ties with China to strengthen its local textiles and garment manufacturing sector, Ghanaian trade officials have said.
Speaking with Xinhua in an interview, Yoofi Grant, chief executive officer of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center, said Ghana would tap into China's strong technological advantage in the sector to position itself as a leading textiles and garments manufacturing hub in Africa.
He said this would enable Ghana to derive maximum benefits from the African Continental Free Trade Area program.
"We are talking to Chinese manufacturers to partner with Ghanaians in Ghana to produce textile products. So we need Chinese foreign direct investment in that direction to partner our people in doing that," Grant said on the sides of a two-day textiles and garment investment meeting.
