Four Ghanaian garment manufacturing companies in Accra are set to commence the production of personal protective equipment (PPEs) as the government pursues an aggressive policy to meet the demand for protective gears for the health sector.
It comes at a time PPEs supplies across the world are in peak demand with countries jealously guarding their stock.
The Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen, on Saturday, paid a working visit to the four Ghanaian garment manufacturing companies in Accra.
The government selected the companies to produce PPEs for frontline health workers leading the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
The local garment companies selected to spearhead this project are Dignity DTRT, Sleek Garments, Cadling Fashions and Alfie Designs Limited.
A team from the Ministry of Trade and Industry, and the Ministry of Health, accompanied Mr Kyerematen on his visit.
