The Government of Ghana has not taken any decision regarding putting a ban on import of textiles into the country, Haruna Iddrisu, Minister of Trade and Industry has said, reports Graphic Business.

 

There is no proposal to ban the imports of textiles into the country, however, the Government is seeking to regulate the entry of all textiles into Ghana through designated routes so it can control illegal importation and also have better data of the textile imports, Mr. Iddrisu said while addressing a national stakeholders forum organized by the Ministry.

The forum on the ‘National crusade against trade in pirated Ghanaian Textile designs and trademarks’, was aimed at finding solutions to the imminent crises facing Ghana’s textile industry.

According to the Minister, trading in pirated textiles is an infringement on intellectual property and is also a facilitator of illegal import of such textiles into Ghana.

In order to check the inflow of pirated textiles into the country, the Ghanaian Government constituted an anti-piracy task force, but it was suspended late last year on the order of the President John Mahama.

The Government is now thinking on starting programmes to educate people and explain them the difference between genuine and pirated textiles.

 

‘Pirated’ textiles are a major problem affecting the Ghanaian textile industry. The term is used to denote those textile products that are an imitation of traditional Ghanaian textile designs and are available at lower prices.
