The garments sector in Pakistan's Punjab province is a progressive segment with 8 per cent growth in the last decade, according to a study by the Punjab Skills Development Fund (PSDF).

The study aims to develop a future roadmap to enable addressing deficiencies in the garments sector by designing and implementing focused training schemes. Structured interviews of various entities took place to finally arrive at the technical skills requirements of the Punjab garments sector.

Scores of participants from garments industry attended the event in Lahore which marked another milestone for the PSDF where the study was commissioned by the Fund itself.

Entities surveyed for the preparation of the study revealed the fact that the sector had plans to increase their capacity use by 22 per cent in the near future. The survey looked into workers' compensation patterns in the sector where it was found that a 55 percent workforce in the surveyed entities work on piece rate basis. PSDF has also played a very vital role towards the skills development programmes especially catering to garments.

In 2014, it launched the scheme for "skills for garments" and joined hands with some of the most recognised and illustrious industries including the Nishat Textile Mills, Crescent Mills, Masood Textile Mills and Style Textile for providing trainings to its trainees.

PSDF has been working with training service providers including STEP Institute of Professional Development, Pakistan Institute of Fashion and Design and Knittex Apparel, Image Garments.

The Fund aims to provide skills and vocational training opportunities to the poor and vulnerable populations of all 36 districts of the Punjab for improving their ability to find work or progress in their current employment or develop an enterprise. (SH)
