Minister for Trade and Industry Alan Kyerematen last Saturday toured the premises of four Ghanaian garment manufacturing companies tasked to produce personal protective equipment locally.
The companies were selected by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to produce PPEs for the frontline health workers leading the fight against the novel Coronavirus Pandemic.
The local garments companies visited by the Minister were Dignity DTRT, Sleek Garments, Cadling Fashions and Alfie Designs Limited, all in Accra.
The companies are working around the clock to produce Face Mask, Medical Scrubs, Hospital Gowns and Head Gears using fabrics from ATL, Volta Star Textiles and GTP.
Mr. Kyerematen who was accompanied by a team from both Ministry of Trade and Industry, and Ministry of Health encouraged both management and workers of the companies to adhere to the World Health Organisation’s preventive protocols and express the gratitude of the Government to them for supporting the fight against this global pandemic.
