  • To organize advocacy workshops on the tax relief for the local textile industry
  • Dialogue among the stakeholders- Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, Ministry for Private Sector, Textile Industry and Cloth Sellers.
  • (d). The expected impact(s) of the advocacy Action (i.e. the effects of the result(s) achieved by your Action).
    Tax relief granted lowers the market price to enhance greater patronage resulting in the production of more raw materials locally to feed the textile industry and consequent easing of unemployment and the reduction of poverty.
    More investors will flock to the country and eventually enough textile materials will be produced for local consumption and for export.
    In effect the tax network becomes wider and more revenue collected for the state.
