Tianmen garment industry sector develops new model
Jan '14
The garment industry in China’s Tianmen has developed a new model to overcome the problem of labour shortage.
An International Garment Industry City is being developed over an area of 5,000 acres with an investment of 12 billion yuan in Tianmen. The project is expected to change the traditional image of the garment industry, as in addition to more than 1,000 garment enterprises and supporting service providers, the City would also have e-commerce, hotels, catering, logistics and other facilities employing over 5 million people.
The Tianmen modern industrial town would differ from the traditional garment industrial park as it would have other additional facilities, and is being developed as an alternative to the traditional model.
Actually, the new model is aimed at solving people’s issues, and the development of City would be promotion of urbanization through industrialization, says an expert.
In the traditional garment industry, labour is fundamental, but in recent years, owing to improved quality of life and environmental requirements, it has become difficult to attract enough talent in a simple industrial park model, according to industry analysts.
In a traditional garment industrial park, there is too monotonous row of plants, and there is no availability of places for comfort and relaxation in the vicinity.
The construction of Tianmen Garment Industry City is expected to address the problem of underemployment, as it would offer home environment and attract talent to return, feel analysts.
