Dominican apparel industry gets govt support

The apparel industry in Dominican Republic has received Government support as the Instituto Nacional de Bienestar Estudiantil (INABIE or National Institute for Student Welfare), will purchase school uniforms, including shirts, trousers, socks, backpacks and shoes, from micro, small and medium Dominican manufacturers.
 
22 of the 39 bidding companies were enrolled for supplying school uniforms to INABIE through a transparent bidding process, and these companies would be manufacturing 233,000 trousers, 243,000 shirts, 304,000 socks and 275,000 pairs of shoes.
 
Through a video press release titled “Made in Dominican Republic”, the Directorate General of Communication (DICOM) highlighted the impact of the Government measure that aims to protect and benefit the local garment industry.
 
The Government purchases, valued at 285 million pesos, would protect jobs and investments made by clothing businesses, said the video.
 
Already, the first impact of Government procurement of school uniforms can be seen in the creation of dozens of new jobs.
 
The DICOM press release said the previous governments imported school uniforms, instead of buying them locally. The present Government under President Danilo Medina had opened a tender for domestic micro, small and medium textile enterprises.
