By David A. MartinThe story of how the Zimbabwe cotton industry has re-imagined itself in the last decade is one of the biggest in the country.
A textile industry that has grown up alongside a large number of rural industries has become one of its fastest growing sectors in the past 10 years.
It was not always so.
In 2009, when President Robert Mugabe made the decision to create a new textile industry to replace the country’s ageing and under-performing textile industry and, with the help of an international consortium, set about turning the once-coveted and unproductive cotton industry into an export-oriented and export-rich industry.
In the years since then, Zimbabwe’s industry has grown from a tiny textile industry of around 2,500 workers to a manufacturing powerhouse that has exported a fifth of its output to other African countries.
Its growth has come in part thanks to a change in the world of textile production.
The United States, Europe, India and Japan are the biggest producers of cotton in Africa.
But the biggest growth in cotton production in Africa came from China, followed by India and Brazil.
The industry’s growth has been driven by the success of new technologies and technologies that have allowed for the textile industry’s productivity to rise.
But for years, the country was also struggling with a shortage of skilled workers.
In 2012, the Zimbabwe National Cotton Mills Association (ZNCMA) began to take on a bigger role in the industry.
It hired up to 800 skilled workers and set up a textile production unit in a textile factory in Harare.
This was the beginning of the end of the old textile industry.
In 2014, the ZNCMA announced it would close down the old Mills.
By 2020, it was planning to create two new textile factories, one in Harares and one in the south-western town of Mutare.
But in May 2017, the government decided to bring in new workers for the new Mills.
In early 2018, a new factory opened in the same area.
Its name was the Mutare Textile Factory.
It has now become the biggest employer in the city.
In recent years, its workforce has also expanded, with over 3,000 skilled workers now employed there.
The workforce has grown at a rate of 5 per cent a year, according to the Zimbabwe Cotton Industry Council (ZCIC).
The factory has also opened its own textile manufacturing unit.
In March, the textile workers in the new facility were given the opportunity to make their own clothes.
The success of the new factory was based on a combination of new technology and a commitment to create more jobs for workers.
The ZNCA said it had developed a textile manufacturing system that would allow it to hire up to 700 workers, with a staff of up to 1,500.
The textile workers said they were excited to be part of a new industrial revolution.
“We are proud to be a part of this project.
This is our first job.
We feel like we are part of something bigger,” said Mahamata Sariwa, one of those who had been working for more than a decade.”
Now we have the opportunity for the rest of the country to benefit from what we are making.
The world needs this to get back to normal.”
The new textile factory is part of the ZCIC’s plan to build the world’s largest textile production hub in Hara.
It has been a dream of mine for years.
It’s my dream to see it become a reality.
The factory will produce over 300,000 shirts a year and produce garments for around $300 a kilogram.
It is expected to create 300,00 jobs over the next 10 years and create about 15,000 new jobs.
The factory’s employees are paid between $300 and $1,200 a month.
The workforce will also earn more than $200 a day.
They will earn between $1 and $2,000 a month, depending on their experience and education.
The ZCICA is planning to hire as many as 200 workers a month to support the textile production, with each worker earning up to $700.
The plan to create the hub has received support from the United States Department of Commerce.
A group of US companies including Unilever, General Mills and Levi Strauss have donated $1 million to the ZCI, and $5 million has been pledged by ZCII to the new plant.
A lot of that money will go towards creating new jobs, particularly in areas such as textile manufacturing, but the textile sector’s future lies in attracting skilled workers from the rest in the rest, said ZCIA president Muthai Mwenda.
Zimbabwe has a growing textile sector, but in many ways the industry is still struggling.
In 2016, the nation produced just 4.5 per cent of its textile exports.
By 2022, the percentage would have been 7 per
