Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 11, 2014
The textile and clothing industry in South Africa is a relatively small sector within the country's economy. However, it has the potential to be a significant employer within the manufacturing sector. The South African government is therefore supporting the development of textile and clothing industry clusters by helping with investment in infrastructure and implementation of best practice, and providing incentives through the Competitiveness Improvement Program (CIP) and the Production Incentive Program (PIP). In the retail sector, demand has expanded as a result of growth in the economy since the global recession of 2009. However, the main beneficiaries of the expansion have been foreign suppliers -- mainly in Asia and other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa -- and clothing imports have grown significantly in recent years.
