Skilled workforce may boost value-added textile exports
Feb '11
Textile Commissioner Muhammad Idrees, while speaking at the closing ceremony of the 9th Round of Apparel Manufacturing and Management Training programme, recently said that if the Pakistan's value-added textile sector's workforce is given proper training to boost its capacity to optimum level, the sector has a potential to fetch a minimum of $50 billion to the country's economy by way of exports. The ceremony was organized at the Readymade Garments Technical Training Institute.

The official stated that the current export volume is not satisfactory and that the industry stakeholders can easily enhance this volume to almost double, if they work on enhancing the skills of the workers and try to fulfil the standards set by the buyers.

The training programme targeted at skill development involved one-month training under which the textile industry personnel were imparted training on various aspects like cutting, stitching, sewing, industrial engineering, production management and quality control.

Experts and consultants from a globally renowned consultancy firm, Technopak, were appointed for imparting the training.

There were 31 master trainers or middle management professionals who participated in the 9th round of the training programme. These 31 personnel represented firms like the Soorty Enterprises, Artistic Milliners, Rajby Industries, Naz Textiles and Selimpex International.

Till date, the training programme has been effectively implemented in 30 textile units in Sindh, whereby training has been provided to 279 master trainers and other 3,693 employees.

Complete course syllabus, along with the manuals, consulting directives and training were made available to these factories under the programme.
