Mar '12
Sri Lanka has expressed readiness to support Namibian apparel industry by sharing technical know-how and other expertise so that Namibia can benefit from the same.

During his meeting with Sri Lankan Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen, Samuel K. Mbambo, the new High Commissioner of the Republic of Namibia to Colombo, said Namibia is now looking forward to develop its apparel industry, and would like to seek technical know-how assistance from Sri Lanka, so as to reproduce the success achieved by the latter.

In response, Mr. Bathiudeen said Sri Lanka is ready to help Namibia acquire basic expertise in apparel making. He informed that Sri Lanka is the world's leading supplier of ethical apparels.

Sri Lanka's apparel exports for 2011 stood at US$ 4.039 billion, of which apparels worth US$ 369.4 million were shipped during the month of December, he said.

The Minister further stated that Sri Lankan apparel industry presently caters to leading global brands like Victoria's Secret, Diesel, Marks & Spencer, SUZI Chin, H&M and House of Frazer.

He emphasized that Namibia can also acquire such expertise in apparel manufacturing and Sri Lanka would extend all assistance required for the same.
