IAF to help Bangla garment sector in capacity building

Jan '14
IAF has been granted an EU funded project together with its two association members BKMEA (The Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association) and HCIA (The Hellenic Clothing Industry Association).

The project is aimed at capacity building, network extension and knowledge transfer. As a result of this project BKMEA and HCIA will be able to better service the companies that are their members by having gained more international contacts, more knowledge and more insights.

The project will include training sessions in Bangladesh and several networking trips to Europe and to Bangladesh. The IAF will make sure that more IAF members than BKMEA and HCIA will benefit from the project by setting up a peer group to which it invites its members with specific interests in the Bangladesh knitwear industry. Project execution will start very soon.

The apparel industry undeniably plays a big role in the industrial development of many countries creating millions of jobs worldwide. Where big improvements in production infrastructure can still be made, big productivity gains and big improvements in working conditions can be combined.

Therefore, IAF is pleased to contribute to the industrial development of Bangladesh. Knowledge is key and with an expert network, IAF is able to transfer this knowledge for improving the apparel industry as a whole.
