Focus on sustainability in African textile value chains

Africa | Industry



Andrew Jeffreys, CEO of Oxford Business Group, speaks with Gagan Gupta, CEO and Co-Founder of Arise, about the current focus on diversifying supply chains away from Asia and towards Africa through nearshoring. This forms part of Africa's broader goal of leveraging locally available raw materials to generate added value and improve the region's competitiveness. The creation of new industrial zones on the continent is a step forwards in this regard, and will in turn help to make supply chains more sustainable and traceable, reducing the need to transport goods over long distances.

This video interview was produced as part of a larger study published by OBG in partnership with Arise, titled "West Africa Textiles and Garments: Focus Report" .
