TESDA to join govt to promote shoe industry

Jan '06
Government is taking major steps to boost the shoe manufacturing industry.

National Technical Education Skills Development Plan (NTESDP) of the National Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) will also help the Government in its efforts.

TESDA formulates manpower and skills plans, sets appropriate skills standards and tests, and provides policy directions and guidelines for resource allocation for institutions in both the private and public sectors.

The government will train the craftsmen to upgrade their potential and also modernize the country's footwear industry, in an attempt to elevate it to global competitive level.

According to the Labor Market Intelligence Report (LMIR) of the TESDA, Philippines needs 622 skiving operators 1324 upper makers and also 662 involved in sewing and closing, lasting, assembly bottoming, finishing and pattern making to be able to compete with other countries.

In all, 5958 workers must be employed in this sector to enable it to achieve a growth rate of five percent from 2005 to 2007.

The Cottage Industry Technology Center (CITC) of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has also been approached to promote this sector.

DTI's goal is to grow and expand Philippine trade and industry as the means to generate jobs and raise incomes.

Government is encouraging the industry to modernize, step up human resource development and reinvigorate the globally renowned Filipino shoe craftsmanship.
