The International Apparel Federation (IAF) with other organisations is leading the development of a training course on collaborative sourcing, for both buyers and manufacturers in Bangladesh. The course will create a unique opportunity for buyers and manufacturers to learn about collaborative sourcing in a joint and collaborative training course.

The decision to start a training course was taken at a conference on 'Sustainable Sourcing in the Garment Sector' (SSGS) organised by the embassy of Netherlands in Dhaka, hosted in partnership with IAF and the BGMEA.

This conference clearly indentified knowledge as a key factor in creating more sustainable sourcing practices. It also concluded that for management of both, buying firms as well as manufacturing companies, more knowledge of setting up collaborative sourcing arrangements is needed.

IAF will lead the formation of a consortium involving major Bangladeshi and international partners to build and finance the training course. The course will also serve as a benchmark for similar training courses to be developed in other countries with a major apparel industry. (AR)
