Bolivian firm aims at raising garment exports to Venezuela

The Bolivian Association of Textile Producers Entrepreneurs (Aemprotex) is expanding its facilities in El Alto to increase its garment exports to Venezuela.

Aemprotex began four years ago with 12 partners, eight of whom have left in the intervening period due to production problems.

Currently, Aemprotex exports about 200,000 apparels annually to Venezuela that include T-shirts, leggings and sportswear in all colours.

The existing bilateral agreement between Bolivia and Venezuela is helping Aemportex to export its clothing to Venezuela.

However, Aemprotex has to depend on Peru, from where it imports its cotton and silk fabric requirements.

Mario Tarqui Arias, General Manager at Aemprotex, said the profits are negligible and in most cases only production costs are recovered.

He mentioned that Aemprotex manufacturing unit has 78 machines and it currently employs 20 workers, most of whom are women. He added that the staff increases during peak periods.

He urged the Government to restore the Andean Trade Preferences Act and Drug Eradication Act (ATPDEA) so that exports may resume again to the US market.
