Country produces 34 million textile pieces/year but expects to triple that number soon

The national textile industry currently produces 34 million pieces per year, a number that is expected to triple soon, following Government incentives aimed at promoting national cotton production and limiting the import of raw materials, said Luís Contreiras, president of the Association of the Angolan Textile and Clothing Industry.

To achieve this purpose, the objective is to produce two pieces per year for each citizen, along with the surplus destined for export, thus reducing the volume of used clothing that is imported, as well as incentives for farmers and cooperatives to produce cotton at less cost, pointed out Luís Contreiras, in statements, cited by Jornal de Angola, as part of his intervention at the second Trade Forum in Angola, held this Thursday, in the auditorium of the National School of Administration and Public Policies.

Another speaker at this forum was the Secretary of State for Industry, Carlos Rodrigues.

Increasing customs duties on raw materials used by the textile industry, with a view to promoting cotton production, was the idea defended by the Secretary of State, who also highlighted that the country has one of the most modern factories in Africa, as well as the capacity in productive terms in most of the country, writes Jornal de Angola.

The forum was under the theme "The Challenges for Trade Facilitation in Angola".
