The South African Clothing and Textile industry has reached steady state and is getting ready for bigger growth and grow the export industry for which the South African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (Sactwu) aims at pushing local textile manufacturers to revise policies and agendas.

Sactwa said that the Trade and industry minister Rob Davies participated in a Clothing, Textile and Leather Industry Imbizo event aimed at injecting new life into the textile industry held at the Cape Town International Conference Centre.

The union’s general secretary Andre Kriel said that the union is encouraging the clothing and textile industry to re-orientate their programs and become more focused on exports.

Kriel further added that although the clothing and textile industry has reached a stable state and is ready for bigger growth they can’t just relax now they have to have a vision of where they want to lead the industry and think exports are quite a good incentive and it’s quite a good step to grow the industry further.
