SACU Textile and Clothing Sector
The development of the long-term strategy for the SACU textile and clothing sector has become a priority for the Council. The SACU Trade Ministers have reaffirmed the need for SACU to advance work in this area. Work has been commissioned to undertake research on all aspects relating to the development of a long-term strategy, including the cost-benefit analysis of the Textile and Clothing Industry Development Programme (TCIDP) and the options for a replacement scheme for the TCIDP.
