A preferential treatment would be offered to the local textile industries in 2010, for supplying textile materials required for producing school uniforms, informed the Ministry of Textile.

It has been estimated that for school uniforms the country requires a total of 8 million meters of white material, 2.5 million meters of White and Blue Trouser Materials and 0.27 million meters of materials for robes.

Around seven textile industries have been chosen to produce the required materials that have a combined capacity of weaving and finishing six million meters, while remaining 4.5 million meters will be imported from foreign suppliers.

The fabric that will need to be imported will be in gray form and will be printed and dyed in local companies of Sri Lanka, which will help to boost local textile sector and to save foreign exchange.

The textile training service centre will keep a close check on the quality of fabrics supplied by these companies, in order to ensure consistency in quality of the materials.

The companies will be paid Rs. 87.50, Rs. 139.50 and Rs. 151.00 per meter for supplying gray fabric for shirting, white trouser material and blue trouser materials respectively, and for finishing the same, they will be paid, Rs. 82.00, Rs. 130.00 and Rs. 140.00 respectively.
