MINISTRY ENGAGES LOCAL TAILORS

0

The Ministry of Industry has challenged local players in the Garments and Textile Industry to begin now organising themselves into Cooperatives if they are to adequately benefit from the policy reforms government is putting in place aimed at promoting local Industries.

Minister of Industry Honourable Roy Kachale Banda says government has already shown commitment in the 2020/2021 national budget to grow local Garments and Textiles Industry by encouraging government departments to prioritise buying products such as uniforms for civil servants made locally.

Meanwhile some Tailors who attended the interface say they are excited with the step taken by government saying apart from making their businesses grow, this will also create more jobs for many unemployed Malawians.

On Thursday 17th September 2020 the minister of Industry engaged Tailors from Lilongwe where he assured them of government’s support to improve the local Industries.

Mrs Naomi Charity Kaulembe of Framewal Toiloring Shop and Mr Edwin Chadza Musasa of Temie Safety Products have since assured government that they will make sure they have organised themselves into Cooperatives as quickly as possible.

Meanwhile the Industry minister who indicated the ministry will be providing trainings to the Tailors to run successful Cooperatives has advised the local Tailors to include in their Cooperatives a department that will specifically be working in ensuring quality of their products and also ensure their prices are competitive.
