The Association of Ghana Apparel Manufacturers (AGAM) and the Foreign Trade Association of the German Retail Trade (AVE) have entered into a new partnership aimed at fostering sustainable growth and employment development in Ghana’s textile sector.
Funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the partnership will focus on three primary objectives: Strengthening the management of AGAM in a sustainable manner; Providing demand-oriented services for member companies; and Establishing a professional representation of interests.”
A release issued in Accra last Wednesday after a workshop said, the partnership will also encompass capacity-building efforts, training programs, and networking opportunities that can further enhance the skill sets of these enterprises and promote the sustainability of the AGAM management.
“This significant collaboration represents an international commitment to bolstering economic development in Ghana, with particular attention to the textile industry. Both AGAM and AVE eagerly anticipate the positive impacts this partnership will bring to the nation’s textile sector and broader economic landscape” the release added.
“Our collaboration with AVE will empower us to better manage our organisation, offer tailored services to our members, and professionally advocate for their interests,” acting President of AGAM, Nura Salifu said.
She added that, “The joint endeavor is part of a broader objective to improve the business environment for Ghanaian enterprises in the Apparel, Garment and Textile sector, which in turn will drive economic growth and employment development across Ghana.”
