The Government of South Korea has launched a project to set up a garment training centre at the industrial park in Caracol, a village in the Caribbean country of Haiti, reports Haiti Libre.
 
The project is being launched through the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), which has allocated US$ 3.5 million for the implementation of the project, as per the agreement signed by KOICA and Haiti’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
 
The aim of the project is to train unskilled women so they can get employment and also meet the demand of the garment industry, and in the process contribute to employment and income generation and thereby help in poverty alleviation and sustainable economic development of Haiti.
 
The Caracol Industrial Park is owned by the National Society of Industrial Parks (SONAPI), which has provided 10,500 sq m of land to KOICA for establishing the garment training centre.
 
According to the agreement, besides constructing the training centre, the KOICA would also provide equipments and Korean experts who would impart training to Haitian people. The KOICA would also train Haitian personnel for the day-to-day operation of the garment training centre.
 
Haiti produced $800 million worth of garments in 2013, including 20 million dozen T-shirts and 1.5 million dozen jeans, according to the Presidential Commission implementing the Hope II Legislation (CTMO-HOPE) Secretariat, which expects Haiti’s garment exports to touch $1.2 billion this year.
