SME to study garment & textile industry of PNG

The minister of trade, commerce and industry of Papua New Guinea (PNG) has directed the small medium enterprise (SME) corporation to conduct a study into the textile and garment industry of the country. The study aims to identify measures and policies that can be put into place for cutting down on import bills and manufacture high quality garments.

The study can help identify barriers and formulate new policies to recommend appropriate measures for the growth of the textile industry, said Richard Yakam, first assistant secretary, trade division, department of trade, commerce and industry.

The country can boost its garment and textile industry by implementing appropriate measures and cater to the increasing demand for clothes using the results of the study.

The SME corporation and the department of trade, commerce and industry of the country have also started a textile and garments training programme, according to PNG media reports. The course is being offered by Women's Textile Training Program. However, finding markets to sell products manufactured in the country continues to be a challenge. (KD)
