Vinatex to prepare master plan for improving productivity

The Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex) will prepare a master plan for enhancing productivity and quality, by the end of this year.
 
Speaking at a seminar in HCM City, Vinatex general director Uong Tien Thinh said productivity and product quality are key elements for improving the competitiveness of Vietnamese enterprises.
 
In addition to being price-competitive, corporate social responsibility is also important while exploring global markets, because consumers in developed countries not only look at product quality, but also how the product has been produced, Mr. Thinh said, Viet Nam News reported.
 
While informing that Vinatex would be preparing a master plan by 2013-end to improve productivity and quality in the textile and garment sector, he said that in recent years, several companies, especially garment enterprises, have improved their productivity and quality.
 
However, in spite of improvements, there is still a considerable gap in production efficiency and quality between Vietnam and other leading garment and textile manufacturing countries, Pham Le Hoang of Vinatex’s technology department said.
 
Even within Vietnam’s domestic industry, there is a wide disparity in quality and productivity between various enterprises, Mr. Hoang said.
 
He suggested that Vietnamese garment and textile enterprises should replace their old equipment and embrace new techniques like total quality management (TQM) and lean manufacturing.
 
The master plan will consist of a new set of quality standards for the textile and garment industry, Mr. Thinh said.
 
He informed that Vinatex will be organizing seminars on technology transfer, in which firms having high productivity levels will support other companies in increasing their productivity.
 
Phan Cong Hop, deputy head of the Department of Science and Technology in the Ministry of Industry and Trade, said the Government would provide financial support for companies to help them build quality standards, impart technical training to their staff, conduct research and evaluate products, and introduce new models of productivity and quality management.
