India to set up textile training institute in Nigeria
Apr '13
Many new opportunities are coming for Nigerian youth as India is gearing up to set up a textile training institute in Kaduna state, the Head of Africa Initiatives and Industry Research of IL&FS Cluster Development Initiative Limited, Dr. Milan Sharma has said.
The new institute would allow Nigerian youth to acquire latest skills in textile manufacturing and operating textile machines, an Indian delegation visiting Kaduna said.
During a meeting with Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, the Indian delegation said the institute would be set up as soon as the Kaduna state government allocates them a land for the purpose. To commence with, the institute would launch a six month training program with a batch size of 30 pupils, which would be expanded in future, the delegation said.
Nigeria is a leading cotton producer and it also has a strong base in textiles, and hence there is much potential for development of textile industry in the country, while the image of Kaduna as a reservoir of textile industries, makes it a preferred choice for setting up the institute, the Indian delegation said.
On his part Governor Yero vouched full support of Kaduna state government to the project, as it is likely to generate wider employment opportunities for the state’s youth and also because Kaduna is a cotton producing state.
He requested the delegation to discuss with the Commissioner for Land and other government authorities for finalizing the site for setting up the institute and to decide as to how the state government could help the Indian Government in setting up the institute.
