European Union-funded project SMART Myanmar recently launched a six-month advanced chemical management training programme for garment and textile factories in Myanmar. The training uses a curriculum developed by the Promotion of Social and Environmental Standards in the Industry (PSES) project, a joint initiative of the governments of Bangladesh and Germany.

The aim is to help textile and garment units in Myanmar minimize environmental hazards. The Chemical Management & Detox program, launched in August third week, is the newest addition to the project’s several on-site consultancy and training modules, according to a press release from SMART Myanmar.

The PSES mission is being implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, which works on behalf of the German federal ministry for economic cooperation and development (BMZ).

Co-funded by the German Government, SMART Myanmar is the largest not-for-profit technical training initiative in the country’s industrial sector and has trained hundreds of managers and dozens of garment factories on various social and environmental issues.

In the last four years, Myanmar’s garment, textile and footwear industry has grown at an average rate of 6-7 new factories per month. (DS)
