Pakistan's Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) will start courses related to garments and hospitality industries with the assistance of Turkish Cooperation and Coordination agency (TIKA), Pakistani newspapers have reported quoting a press statement.

The decision was taken during a meeting between a three-member delegation from the TIKA and TEVTA Chairman Irfan Qaiser Sheikh in Lahore, according to the press release.

The TEVTA Chairman also discussed in detail the scope of technical assistance in the proposed garment courses. Turkish support in these courses, provision of machinery and equipment, training of trainers in Turkey, curriculum development and accreditation for garments and technical assistance for curricula, training of teachers, will help Pakistan do better in the sector, the release said.
