AICP initiates training for garment sector workers
Sep '13
The Tailoring Industry Association of Paraguay (AICP) has initiated new courses on industrial sewing and advanced manufacturing to offer alternative training for manpower in the area of clothing which increasingly demands trained personnel.
The course on industrial sewing has been developed by the National Vocation Service of the Ministry of Justice and Labor of Paraguay (SNPP), whereas the advanced manufacturing course has been initiated by the AICP with support from the Export and Investment Network (REDIEX) and the Center for Business Development and Industrial Cooperation (CEDIAL), reports Paraguayan newspaper La Nacion.
The main objective of the initiative is to meet the demand of skilled labor in the Paraguayan garment industry, for which the public and private establishments formed an alliance to develop the courses.
Santiago Colombino, president of AICP, said currently around 20,000 people are engaged in the Paraguayan garment industry which is extremely labor intensive, and requires manpower with certain important skills.
Belen Brunn, AICP manager, said the advanced manufacturing course would allow training in handling the Gerber System software that speeds up production processes in companies.
Guillermo Sosa, director general of SNPP, said the goal is to provide trained personnel real opportunities for entering the garment manufacturing industry.
According to AICP data, till July 2013, Paraguay exported garments worth US$ 34.5 million indicating a decrease of 3 percent compared to the same period last year.
