Myanmar to set up exclusive textile & apparel zone

The Myanmar government is planning to set up an exclusive textile and garment zone, which will be equipped to produce raw materials, machines and finished products in a single place.

“This was shared by union minister for industry Khin Maung Cho at a meeting held to form a central executive committee of the Myanmar Textile and Garment Entrepreneurs Association,” a statement said.

According to the statement, the minister also urged domestic apparel producers to manufacture products that met global standards and also called on setting up a global standards textile testing laboratory.

The minster was quoted as saying that issuing international-standard certificates would make domestic garment producers more competitive in worldwide markets.

The Myanmar clothing industry employs around 350,000 people, who together work at nearly 400 apparel facilities across the country. (AR)
