Work has begun on Ramatex Berhad's US$100 million textile and garment plant in Namibia. Initial details of the project, which on completion will be the largest integrated facility on the African continent, were announced in July, but it has now been revealed that the plant will provide up to 15,000 jobs in the next five years. Located on a 65ectare site 3km from Windhoek, the facility will also provide easy access to the huge European and US markets.
