The Brunei Industrial Development Authority (BINA), an agency under the Ministry of Industrial and Primary Resources, Government of Brunei, is working with Famous Textile, a local textile company to initiate a training programme for garment industry professionals in the country, according to The Brunei Times.
The pilot project is still in its initial stages, and its complete details as well as eligibility criteria for the training are yet to be finalized, states the report.
Making an announcement about the proposed training programme, BINA said it would identify and guarantee buyers for the apparel made by the participants of the entrepreneurial programme.
As part of the programme, Famous Textile would look for sponsors to encourage and nurture young entrepreneurs to venture and become successful entrepreneurs in Brunei’s clothing industry.
The company would guide and help those who take part in the training programme in their first business transaction from the process of design, submission, and execution to delivery, invoicing, and receiving payment.
The programme would give young entrepreneurs an opportunity to be creative while assisting them in successfully launching their own enterprises.
The programme would also include seminars on different aspects of applying embellishment to readymade garments using techniques such as screen printing, embroidery, sublimation, and batik designing.
Moreover, young entrepreneurs taking the course would be asked to create designs featuring various aspects of Bruneian culture as well as the country’s picturesque sights like coral reefs and rainforests.
Famous Textile Sendirian Berhad is a manufacturer of complete range of garments and clothing items for men, women and children. With over two and a half decades of expertise in the industry, the company specializes in offering high quality manufactured knit and woven wear.
