Traders sensitised to avoid pirated textiles

The Ministry of Trade and Industry has organised a workshop to sensitise traders to the need to avoid importing and dealing in pirated textiles.
The workshop, which formed part of the national crusade against trading in pirated Ghanaian textiles, was intended to help protect the local textile industries, as well as ensure job security among the youth in the country.
Speaking at the workshop, a Director at the ministry, Mr Appiah Donyina, said the ban on the importation of the pirated textiles formed part of the ministry’s policies to protect the local industries.
That, he said, would also help sanitise the textiles industry. Mr Donyina said the sale of local pirated textiles was contributing to the low sales of the genuine ones.
Other speakers included Mr E. N. A Arde-Acquah from the Ghana Standards Authority and Mr John Amoah, a representative of Local Textile Manufactures.
