20 young Haitians to receive training in textile industry
Sep '11
Of the 200 young candidates who applied for receiving executive training in the textile industry, 20 local professionals have been selected and would soon be imparted training at a textile industry in Nicaragua.

Jocelyne Colimond Féthière, Haiti's Minister of Commerce, said that the six-month training is being imparted under the aegis of a leading Korean textile company, SAE-A Trading Co., as a part of the construction project for Industrial Park of North.

He said that on completion of the training, all the 20 professionals would be posted at management positions in the Korean firm. They would even impart training to other workers who subsequently join the company.

The Minister said that he is optimistic about the project and that Haitians should be happy as employment opportunities generated through the project would revamp Haiti's image.

He added that the project would enable people in the country to earn their own livelihood to support their lives, construct houses and invest in other sectors. Overall, it would bring a bright future to Haiti, he added.

The Korean firm would spend US$ 78 million towards procurement and installation of machinery for the project, which is expected to generate 20,000 permanent job opportunities over the next seven years.

National Society of Industrial Parks (SONAPI) Managing Director, Jean Kesner Delmas, said that the construction work in respect of the new Industrial Park of North is progressing swiftly and if everything goes as per the schedule, the company would be able to commence its operations in the first part of next year.
