Garment training centre to help workers step up the ladder
Mar '11
THE Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) recently revealed its plans to invest five million USD this year to set up a training centre to enhance the skills of the garment workers to enhance their skills so that they can assume the responsibility of management functions which presently are being carried out by the people of foreign origin to a large extent.

The Association is positive on meeting some progress on this front by June this year, and is hunting for an appropriate site for setting up the training centre. A French Development Agency would finance construction of this training centre by way of loan.

The garment sector in the kingdom, employ's around 320,000 people, around 10,000 of whom are in management positions, however, Vietnamese, Chinese and Filipinos constitute around 90 percent of these positions.

Cambodian workers having a minimum two years of work experience would qualify for applying to various training courses ranging from six months to three years, while the fee burden would be borne by the employers.

The industry stakeholders' too have acclaimed the associations' move, and have expressed hope that the training centres would allow the domestic industry workers to upgrade themselves and have access to the high-tech techniques used in the garment industry.

Along with which, this training would help the Cambodian workers to assume management positions which are presently held by the foreign workers.
