'JAAF must urge Sri Lankan govt to permit foreign workers'

Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF) – Sri Lanka’s leading apparel body – should urge the Government to allow apparel units to hire at least 10 percent foreign workers so as to cope with the existing labour crisis, which is taking a toll on the domestic industry, the newly appointed Chairman of the Apparel Exporters Association 200 Garment Factories Programme (GFP), Mr. Anis Sattar has suggested.
 
Speaking at the 2013 Annual General Meeting of the association, Mr. Sattar said several garment firms in the country are enduring severe labour crisis, which is impacting their performance, and it would be advisable for the Government to allow these firms to hire skilled as well as unskilled workers from Bangladesh and Myanmar.
 
He said he would remain focused on helping the member firms of the association to find way and achieve their goals and work closely with the Government to take forward their existing growth and make new records to push the industry to newer heights.
 
Reminding of the severe competition led by the new generation and ideas, which rule the consumer demand, be it in terms of price, service or technology, Mr. Sattar said it is important for the country to strive to grab new orders, while retaining the existing ones.
 
Mr. Sattar also suggested exploring new social networks like Facebook and Twitter which are a strong means of communication in present times, and can largely contribute in exhibiting the abilities of their association before world. This would help them portray the concepts and knowledge of the burgeoning Sri Lankan apparel industry before the world, and also to explore new ideas, he added.
