Vietnamese garment makers sign MOU to boost standards

In a bid to improve their exports prospects, garment manufacturers in Vietnam have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with TUV SUD, an international service provider in testing, inspection, audit and certification in the textile industry.

The MoU signed between TUV SUD and the HCM City Association of Garment Textile Embroidery and Knitting (AGTEK) will update the Asian exporters about the prevailing stringent quality standards and safety regulations in the international markets, especially Europe and the US, according to Vietnamese media reports.

Under the MOU, the two sides will co-organise quality and safety workshops and awareness programmes related to the textile and garment industry, Sathish Kumar Somuraj, General Director of TUV SUD Vietnam said.

“Global buyers, especially those in Europe and the US, are very demanding with respect to the kind and quality of products they want,” Somuraj said adding that quality and safety control are essential for companies in Vietnam, especially those looking to sell their products to international markets.

Ph?m Xuan Hong, AGTEK chairman, said Vietnam has improved its business opportunities by signing free trade agreements with some key global players like the EU, US, Japan, Korea, and ASEAN.

While these agreements would enable easy access to global markets, it also means that Vietnamese manufacturers would need to comply with more stringent quality and safety regulations, he said.

The workshops would include in-house training sessions aimed at providing local manufacturers an updated and more in-depth understanding of the international quality and safety standards, Somuraj said adding that the MOU also includes a special promotion for the association's members, who are mainly small and medium-sized enterprises.
