SRI LANKA: Textile industry should produce quality products

COLOMBO: Deputy Director Textile and Training and Services Centre, S. Kuruppumullage has said that the Clothing and Textile Industry is unable to compete in foreign markets due lack of quality products. 

People should be made aware of low quality products which have entered the local market, he added.

He said neighboring countries like China, Bangladesh, Vietnam have now become competitors with the introduction of the free quota system. Quality, quantity ingredients such as dyes and chemicals need to be given more attention he stressed.

Clothing and textile industry is one of the main industries in the country.
This is an industry which contributes 40 percent to the Gross Domestic Product and 50 percent foreign exchange earnings. The industry generates more than one million direct and indirect job opportunities.

The country mainly exports to the United States, UK and the European countries. The order inflow is good but the present crisis makes it difficult to meet the demand, he said. We must improve quality.

In order to provide a better knowledge for those engaged in this field, the Clothing Industry Training Institute as a part of its new strategy to educate and develop the textile and apparel sector of the Country, conducted a seminar on supply chain management which is vital to survive in a competitive global scenario.
