His Majesty’s Government through the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Trade has officially launched plans to establish two factory shells worth E55 million.
The two factory shells were launched at Gamula under the Lubombo Region and Mantambe in the Shiselweni Region by the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Trade Manqoba Khumalo and was also graced by the Chief Ngome of Mantambe and Gamula Indvuna Yenkhundla Sandziso Mamba.
When delivering his speech, Minister Khumalo revealed that the factory shells will be occupied by FTM Garments and are part of Government's efforts to bring development to rural communities and create employment opportunities at grassroots level, in line with the findings of the poverty eradications assessment.
“During the Speech from the Throne, His Majesty requested that factory shells be taken to rural areas. We will make sure that this happens smoothly, on time and within budget whilst ensuring that locals are employed in them.
We thank Their Majesties for their support. Government is excited about this project. We believe real development should not only be confined to urban areas but should also be decentralised.
Through these firms, we are hopeful that new entrepreneurs will be born and locals employed,” said the Minister. Meanwhile Chief Ngome and the Gamula Indvuna Yenkhundla also expressed excitement about the project.
"This project will benefit our community members as they will save a lot in terms of transportation fees and other costs associated with working in urban areas. We promise to do everything in our power to take care of the project.
We are very excited about this development. Thank you Minister and your team for following up on your promises.
We promise to make sure that once the firm is up and running, and handed over to us, we will take care of it,” said the Chief.
