UNIDO, Japan to boost garment-textile jobs in Palestine
Japan recently announced it will fund $446,428 to improve the competitiveness of the garment and textile value chain in Palestine to promote employment, especially in the northern governorates of the West Bank. This is one of nine new projects implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) with Japanese funding totalling $5.8 million.

“By promoting creativity, not only innovation and economic competitiveness are fostered, but also many individuals, including young men and women, are encouraged to develop creative approaches for starting new industrial ventures with a vision towards the future transformation of their societies,” said UNIDO project Manager, Marlen Bakalli.

The project will apply UNIDO’s approach to creative industries, according to a press release from the UN body. It involves the design and implementation of a comprehensive training programme focused on creativity, which will boost skills development, innovation and access to markets in the textile value chain to stimulate income-generating activities.

A Garment and Fashion Design Centre will be established to provide services to key stakeholders of the sector–including business development, design and prototyping services–in a sustainable manner. (DS)
