Liberia to get new training centre for garment stitching
Feb '12
Liberia National Tailors, Textiles, Garments and Allied Workers' Union would shortly launch a training centre for garment stitching in Monrovia, the capital city of the west African nation.

President of the Tailors Union, Saah Taylor, said the new facility would facilitate training of the members of the Workers' Union, helping them to upgrade their skills to meet international standards, and thus help Liberians buy locally-made goods.

He emphasized on the need for Liberians to be able to manufacture goods to meet the domestic demand, so as to boost the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and to allow the Government to divert funds for other essential social services in the country.

Mr. Taylor informed that currently the organization is working with the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) and international partners to impart training to its members.

The training programme would go on for three years, he said.

Mr. Taylor hailed the Finance Minister-designate, Mr. Amara Konneh for announcing that the Ministries and agencies of Government would procure around 40 percent of the domestically made products.
