MALAWI: GTMA Says Industry Must Push For Growth
The Garment and Textile Manufacturers Association of Malawi (GTMA) wants its members to expand their businesses after the government said it would help promote the sector.
GTMA chairman Kantlal Desai says the industry has the potential to create more jobs and grow in its established export markets.
Companies currently export to the US by way of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), whilst the ACP/EU Cotonou agreement benefits European trade.
The GTMA predicts that the sector will benefit from strong growth in four to ten years' time if it sets up sufficient strategies.
