Garment training centre opens in Ecuador
Dec '11
A garment training centre has opened in Atuntaqui town in Antonio Ante Canton that lies to the north of Ecuador in South America.

The centre has been set up at a cost of USD 878,400. Out of which, the Ministry of Industry contributed USD 532,800, while the Chamber of Commerce of the town invested USD 233,200 and the Municipal government of Atuntaqui gave USD 112,400.

The centre has a capacity to train 120 workers in stitching garments. Ten instructors appointed at the centre will train people to increase their productivity in garment making.

The centre has been opened after a survey conducted by the Atuntaqui Chamber of Commerce indicated the need for trained personnel for handling of industrial machinery.

The study said other issues became apparent owing to lack of skilled personnel. These were unfair competition in contracting, and low productivity and high costs in the training system in plants through apprenticeship contracts.

The name of the training centre roughly translates to “We are able” or “We are capable of”, and has been opened in the old grandstand granted by the Municipal government of Atuntaqui.
