Peru's Lambayeque to get new textile cluster

Feb '14
The northwestern Peruvian region of Lambayeque would be getting a new textile cluster after the launch of the irrigation project Olmos which would increase cotton production in the region, said president of the Chamber of Commerce of Lambayeque, Otto Zoeger Navarro.
 
According to Mr. Navarro, cotton production is an important productive value chain, and once the Olmos project is functional in the region, a large textile cluster would be created in Lambayeque, reports El informente.
 
Mr. Navarro said that several studies conducted by the regional government indicated that Lambayeque has the potential for development in textile production, however, textile enterprises in the region are located in different districts and it is necessary to identify and see if a textile cluster could be developed in the region with the help of the Textile Guild, in order to improve the quality and competitiveness of the textile sector, for producing value added goods that could be exported.
 
More than 90 percent of the textile and apparel sector enterprises in the region are informal, and in order to enter the international market, not only is it necessary to increase competitiveness, but these enterprises also need to be formalized, he added.
 
According to Mr. Navarro, the region requires a cluster type of organization that can not only standardize textile production in Lambayeque, but also improve the sector, in order to build it as a productive sector that can develop the economy of the region as well as generate labor.
