GNA - The National Administrator of the Ghana National Tailors and Dressmakers
Association (GNTDA), Mr Alfred Yaw Kissi, has advised members of the

the current stiff competition in the industry.
“You should also endeavor to often participate in trade fairs and exhibitions to help showcase your work to the public to boost your visibility and increase your clientele, “he added.
