Apr '13
To boost and develop local knitwear industry, Pakistan’s Ministry of Textile Industry (MinTex), in association with International Labour Organization (ILO), recently organized a training workshop on knitwear and cotton picking.
The five-day workshop aimed at informing the industry people on best capacity enhancement practices and different standards followed worldwide, so as to help them improve their products to match local as well as global markets, Cotton Development Commissioner in MinTex, Dr. Khalid Abdullah said during a media briefing.
The zeal to boost textile and raw cotton exports from the country by defining competency norms for textile value chain and clean cotton picking, encouraged MinTex to enter into a collaboration with ILO, he said.
The participants in the workshop were acquainted on globally recognized norms for hiring, training, human resource development and monitoring, so as to enable them to develop and strengthen the cotton value chain in the country, Dr. Abdullah added.
To cater to the rising need for technical manpower, the programme, in its first phase in Lahore, trained around 20 people in knitwear and cotton picking.
Dr. Abdullah said it is also intended to introduce a separate curriculum for garment and textile industry to help producers make price-effective products that are also quality-efficient.
While ILO extended logistics and financial support to the programme, MinTex lended technical expertise and manpower support to the programme.
