The Cabildo (Council) of Tenerife, the governing body of the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago located just off the northwest coast of mainland Africa, has announced a new project titled ‘Empremoda’, which aims to promote the creation and consolidation of new companies in apparel and textiles.
According to a statement issued by Tenerife Moda, Efrain Medina, the Island Counselor of Employment and Economic Development announced the project, while launching the 6th Annual Young Designers Contest in the region.
The main aim of the project is to promote collaborative entrepreneurships, promote businesses of emerging groups and improve business skills of these groups, encourage business and trade relations between companies, provide a forum for communication and contact between customers and providers, as well as facilitate the search for new business partners, through the Entrepreneurship Island Plan.
Mr. Medina explained that behind everything in the garment and fashion industry, extreme level of hard work is needed, which can translate into a better economic development of the island. The project would help create new enterprises in the apparel and textile sector of the region.
Under the project, the council aims to undertake initiatives specifically for influencing entrepreneurship in the apparel and textile sector, in order to promote micro enterprises for the local market. 
The council also launched the 6th Young Designers Contest, which aims to encourage all young designers of the island to start their career in the field of fashion design and thereby extend support to the clothing and textile industry.
