The Government of Italy is exploring cooperation with Indonesia to develop the textile industry, according to Ramon Bangun, director of textile and miscellaneous industries, in the Ministry of Industry, Tempo reported.
 
Italian Ambassador to Indonesia Federico Filla recently met Industry Minister Mohamad Suleman Hidayat and told him that Italy wants to work together with Indonesia to develop a curriculum in the College of Textiles, Mr. Bangun said.
 
The current curriculum on textiles in Indonesia is lagging behind, as more advanced technologies are being used in the textile industry.
 
In order to work out further details regarding the cooperation, a delegation of Italian Machinery Association would visit Indonesia in March this year.
 
Tjahajana Agus, director general of the Ministry of Industry, said that cooperation with Italy is purely at Inter-Governmental level and is aimed at institutional strengthening, and there has been no talk of industrial investment.
 
In 2013, Indonesian textile exports reached US$ 13.3 billion, and the country is expecting to achieve $14.4 billion this year.
