Uplifting the Textile industry

Minister of the Public Enterprise Sector Hisham Tawfiq announced in 2018 that a comprehensive development plan for the spinning and weaving industry within the ministry’s companies is underway, to be implemented over three years.

The plan will include development of cotton spinning companies through weaving, dyeing and processing, Tawfiq said.

The minister explained that the company’s development plan aims to increase operational capacity in a single shift and increase the number of work shifts, thereby increasing production capacity.

He said that the company would see large investments, particularly for the dyeing and processing stages.

During his meeting with the company’s board of directors and representatives for the employees, Tawfiq stressed the need to improve the costing and pricing systems for the products, develop an effective marketing plan and open new export markets.

He suggested raising awareness among workers about the development plan’s objectives, which positively reflects on the performance of the company and the employees.

“We have to promote the textile and clothing industries to compete in the global market,” he said.
