To this end, they are pursuing the implementation of the procurement of uniforms for the armed forces, paramilitary, schools and hospitals by the three tiers of government as a way of stimulating growth in the sector.

The conversion of some of the industrial development centres into garmenting production hubs, promoting ready-made wears, aggressive sensitisation of the African Growth Opportunity Act (AGOA) and exhibitions.
