NIFT-TEA Institute, Lankan design body sign draft MoU
Jun '16
The NIFT-TEA Knitwear Institute, promoted by Tirupur garment exporters has signed a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government-owned Sri Lanka Institute of Textile and Apparel which will allow it to use Lankan expertise on production management.

The draft MoU was signed in Colombo on Friday between the representatives of NIFT-TEA Institute and Sri Lankan institute. It will come into force automatically once the Lankan Government gives an approval, The Hindu has reported.

According to the agreement, NIFT-TEA Institute would hold one diploma course and four certificate courses with experts deputed by the Sri Lankan Institute of Textile and Apparel on topics related to production, management and merchandising.

“This tie-up is very important as the Lankan institute been famous for producing some of the best technical experts in production technology and management in the textile industry across the globe”, chairman of NIFT-TEA of skill development division, T. R. Vijayakumar told The Hindu.

He said that those who sign up for these courses, could be absorbed by the units in Tirupur knitwear cluster in key posts in the production chain for ensuring cost effective apparel production.

Currently, a large number of units in the Tirupur cluster are struggling to minimise the cost of production as well as adapt to modern machines in apparel production due to lack of adequate specialised trained people to handle production processes. (SH)
