COVID19 Update from dti – 2 June 2020

Dear all


In view of the current depressed state of the economy, and the high level of importation by retailers, there is a need to ensure sustainability of local manufacturing capacity.  We would therefore like to identify products that your industries have capacity to readily produce for supply into the local retail market.

Please see the downloadable spreadsheet below as a start, however, if there is any information that we may have missed, kindly add on.

I would appreciate feedback by Thursday 11 June 2020.
