Thailand wants to be new hub for Muslim apparels
Jun '12
The Government of Thailand wants to see the country develop as a new manufacturing hub for Muslim clothing items.
The Department of Industrial Promotion said Thailand has expertise in apparel designing and production.
However, the garment industry in Thailand is small and most of the domestic manufacturers are small and medium-sized enterprises, which make apparels for the local market.
In view of the same, Muslim clothing manufacturers in Thailand should be assisted in terms of creative designs, knowledge of export markets and market intelligence, the Department said.
It added that garment makers should group themselves together and form networks to increase their distribution bases.
The Thai Government had begun supporting the Muslim clothing industry, especially in the southern part of the country, around four years ago.
This year, the Government’s emphasis is on design and marketing and for the purpose the Department has worked out technical assistance and training programme in collaboration with Srinakharinwirot University.
There are around 2,000 garment manufacturing units in Thailand and the country has the capacity to become a mass producer. However, these units need to sharpen their production skills and build a market base, the Department said.
At present, Indonesia, the country inhabiting the largest number of Muslim population, is the top manufacturer of mass-market Muslim clothing items in the Asean region.
