Angola, prior to its civil war was a production area for cotton, with plans to promote its textile industry under government leadership, and one of Africa's leading textile exporting countries. However, the war has affected nearly all of its factories to lose their production capabilities and depend more on imports.
The fact that it lacks in textile industry, clothes and shoes are not being produced locally and have to depend on imports for this reason it calls for reduction in the custom rates on fashion product.
With import being the only solution, the taxes should be lowers, so that the shops owners have the chance of distributing the products to the final clients as cheaper as possible to the population.
According to former Angolan model Karina Barbosa, the agents and fashion creators have to spend more money on the process of importing raw material.
The lack of textile industry is the main cause for high prices of products practiced by fashion creators and agents.
