Myanmar asks garment units to set up skill testing centres
Myanmar’s ministry of labour, immigration and population has asked garment units in the Hlaing Tharyar Industrial Zone to set up assessment centres so that workers can receive skill certificates from the National Skills Standards Authority. Skill assessment will improve the quality of factory products and brands, authority president U Win Shein said.

Out of the estimated 500,000 garment workers, only 1,831 have skill certificates from the authorit, according to a report in a Myanmarese newspaper.

There are 11 skill assessment centres in the country now run by the government, companies or non-governmental organisations.

Shein said the ministry will provide technical support for factories to establish the centres and provide funds to help test workers. (DS)
