Turkish agency to upgrade Pakistan's textile curricula
May '14
The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) is going to help Pakistan upgrade its textile curricula and also provide experts and trainers to improve skill and expertise of those working in the textile industry, TIKA country coordinator Mustfa Giray Tezel said while speaking to members of the Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI).
Mr. Tezel said the agency was currently operating in more than 100 countries with 33 offices in 30 countries. The agency cooperates in the humanitarian and skill development sectors in order to improve the overall efficiency in various countries, he added.
He said as Turkish Government’s development cooperation agency, TIKA would send Turkish experts to train the people working in the Pakistani textile industrial units, particularly those that are engaged in export to European countries.
He informed that they are considering a proposal to set up a modern textile institute in Lahore or Faisalabad.
The various proposals received during his visit to Faisalabad would be consolidated and analyzed to understand whether any assistance from the Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) is required.
Earlier, in his welcome address, FCCI president Suhail Bin Rashid said he hoped that Turkey would increase its trade with Pakistan, and also help Pakistan by transferring technology and technical know-how.
