The Brazilian state of Alagoas has ensured delivery of 526 new sewing machines to clothing and textile enterprises by the end of 2013 in 10 cities, as part of an agreement to develop and strengthen the local industries registered under the Supply Chain of Textile and Clothing (CPTC).
 
According to a statement issued by the Alagoas Agency, the agreement was signed between the Secretary of State for Planning and Economic Development (SEPLANDE), Federation of Industries of the State of Alagoas (FIEA) and Brazil’s Agency for Support to Micro and Small Enterprises (SEBRAE) to benefit the micro enterprises, small business, individual entrepreneurs and organized groups which are engaged in the textile and apparel production activities.
 
Under the agreement, the three agencies would be delivering around 1,114 new sewing machineries and equipments to textile and apparel companies in 20 different counties of Alagoas, of which 10 counties have already received the delivery of 588 sewing machines and equipments.
 
Representatives from SEPLANDE, FIEA and SEBRAE held a meeting to discuss the next steps of the agreement to deliver the 526 sewing machines and equipments in 10 other cities in the region by the end of 2013.
 
Luiz Otavio Gomes, Secretary of SEPLANDE, said the agreement would give a new dimension to small businesses and ensure productive inclusion, generate employment as well as income for the region.
 
The government of Alagoas is working to ensure that this agreement takes shape and has delivered the machines to enhance production in the clothing and textile enterprises, and would complete the delivery by the end of the year, he added.
 
Pauline Kings, the Director of Development for Micro and Small Enterprises in SEPLANDE, said the idea of the deliveries is not just providing the equipments to these CPTC registered enterprises but also to provide the workers in these enterprises with the technical know-how, training and skill development in order to enhance productivity.
 
The 588 sewing machines have been delivered to regions in the state such as Santana do Ipanema, Paulo Jacinto, Mar Vermelho, Piranhas, Boca da Mata, Murici, Maceió, Capela, Arapiraca and Cacimbinhas have already benefitted from these deliveries.
 
The municipalities of Viçosa, Palmeira dos Índios, União dos Palmares, Pariconha, Olho D'Água do Casado, Coruripe, Olho D'Água das Flores, Porto Calvo, Delmiro Gouveia and Cajueiro would be receiving the remaining 526 deliveries by December, 2013.
