Year 2022 earns champion status in exporting industrial products, textiles, and clothing items

General Secretary of the Myanmar Garment Manufacturers Association (MGMA) and Secretary-General of the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI), Daw Khine Khine Nwe, stated that 2022 is the year when the highest exports of industrial products, textiles, and clothing items can be made.
The statement was made at the coordination meeting over increasing the export of industrial products, textiles, and clothing items held at the UMFCCI on 8 July.
The association has adopted a 10-year strategic plan for 2015-2025, and targets such as the number of factories, export value and employment were set and it met the target until the pre-Covid-19 period.
She also unveiled that in order to increase exports abroad, it is necessary to obtain a large number of garment orders, build trust with the workers, and improve working relations.
For the export development of the garment sector, in cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Technology’s TVET Department, discussions have started to deliver a Diploma in Fashion Technology in the garment training sector.
In 2017, the association also introduced Myanmar’s garment sector (Made in Myanmar) at the Texworld (Messe, Frankfurt, and Paris) held in France.
In addition, the association is working to deliver necessary courses, clarify and teach laws for responsible businesses, and increase working relationships.
At the meeting, deputy chairmen, general secretaries, and business representatives from the MGMA discussed raw materials for export, conditions and difficulties encountered in the import and export of goods, the difficulties and conditions of raw materials required to be able to manufacture and export with the FOP system, allowing workers in the garment sector to work more night shifts, the development of local weaving industries, and ways to facilitate the production and export of local traditional textiles at a high level. — TWA/CT
