Following a series of sideline meetings of the Turkey-Africa Economic and Business Forum between a Ghanaian delegation and Turkish investors, some textile-garment manufacturing giants from the latter will expand their presence to the former. The October 10-11 forum had the theme ‘Invest in a Sustainable Future Together: Turkey and Africa’.

Garment and Textiles is one of the strategic sectors selected by the Ghanaian trade and industry ministry under its industrial transformation plan with a special focus to generate employment and foreign exchange, according to media reports from Ghana.

A deal for a Turkish company to establish a ‘One-District-One Factory’ project in the Shai Hills area was also reportedly finalised.
