The Minister of Industrial Development and International Trade, Rizad Bathiudeen, while speaking at the Annual General Meeting of the Sri Lanka Apparel Exporters Association in Colombo, recently stated that, now it is the right time for the Sri Lanka's apparel industry to consider revitalizing its textile producing industry so as to guarantee integration of the industries.

Innovation, efficient workforce, and global standing in terms of quality and ecological accountability, have continued to remain the main focal point of the Sri Lankan apparel industry for over last 30 years, and the same has helped the industry to grow into a high-level industry rendering services as complete solution providers. The Minister also expressed his contentment over the fact that country's garment industry is now marching ahead towards establishing itself as a fashion industry.

Further that, Sri Lanka has positioned itself as a consistent supplier of superior quality clothing at reasonable rates, alongside observance of lawful practices, which has helped it to earn a recognition as a manufacturer of “garments without guilt”, which better exemplifies the synergy between the Sri Lankan apparels and ethical brands.

Moreover, the country even takes pride in being the Asia's only outsourced garment producing country which has ratified no less than 39 ILO conventions, and has earned recognition as a country that pays fair wages to the employees, and even sustains good working standards at work place.

The Minister further urged the garment entrepreneurs to set up more and more garment units in the Northern Province, and also expressed his delight that, the Ministry is acting towards setting up industrial estates in Vavuniya and Mannar regions, with a view to provide the producers with requisite facilities.
