A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between Pakistan and Korea to set up a Garment Technology Training Centre (GTTC) in Karachi in order to make country's textile and apparel industry more competitive.

Korean Ambassador to Pakistan, Mr. Shin Un and Secretary Ministry of Textile Industry, Mr. Waqar Masood Khan signed this MoU, according to which, infrastructure of the training centre would be established by the Pakistan government while Korea would provide the machinery and expertise.

This Garment Technology Training Centre will impart vocational training in five areas including, garment technology, knitwear technology, apparel marketing, line supervisor and sewing machine operators. The centre would also offer short and tailor-made courses to cater the needs of garment industry.

Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) would provide necessary equipments, machinery, experts and technical guidance required to the centre, along with $1.5 million for three years. Government of Pakistan would also be bearing some of the expenses of the project, through Public Sector Development Program.

The institute will prop up country's textile and apparel industry to improve its competitiveness by providing training facilities and technical expertise in value added area of garment technology as skill development and capacity building are the fundamental components of recently announced Textile Policy 2009-10, stated country's Federal Minister.
