Pakistan’s ministry of commerce and textile industry is offering multiple training courses in different fields to enhance the capabilities of its workers to make the sector competitive. The streams include garments, fashion, apparel design, cutting for lingerie, line supervision and knitting machine operation, according to a senior government official.

The ministry has also launched a skill development project in collaboration with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), according to a news agency report.

Four textile training institutes under the ministry—Pakistan Readymade Garment Training Institute (PRGTTI), Pakistan Knitwear Training Institute (PKTI) in Lahore , Pakistan Fashion and Apparel Design Institute (FADIN) in Karachi and SMA Rizvi Textile Institute (SMARTI) in Karachi— have been selected as partners for implementing the project.

Around 600 workers will be trained over one and half years under the project. (DS)
