TDAP Pakistan holds meeting for management of textiles
Dec '13
The Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) organized a meeting on the management of the textiles and apparel sector of the country, which needs to comply with the environmental and quality standards in order to come up with products that fulfill the requirements of European markets, in view of the forthcoming grant of the Generalized System of Preferences Plus (GSP+) status from the European Union (EU).
The meeting, titled ‘Change Management and Building Institutional Capacity in the Textile and Garment sectors’, was organized to discuss matters of social compliance in view of the GSP+ status which is expected to boost textile exports from the country.
The TDAP meeting saw participation from various textile and garment sector representatives from the country including TDAP secretary Rabiya Javeri Agha and German Government official Gred Leurs.
At the meeting, Mr. Gred Leurs explained that he on behalf of the German Government would be conducting an appraisal of the garment and textile sectors in Pakistan, the results of which will help him develop a project proposal, which would then be submitted to the German Government for approval.
According to Mr. Leurs, the project would aim to address the issue of social compliance of the factories in these sectors, which would assume increasing importance after the forthcoming accession of GSP + facility to Pakistan.
The project would focus on assessment of companies in these sectors with respect to their interest in social compliance, their degree of commitment towards it and the resources available with these firms to achieve social compliance, he added.
On her part, the TDAP secretary extended support to the German Government official for the project stating that TDAP shares the same objectives with respect to social compliance and standards, and would fully assist Mr. Leurs for the project.
