NEPC builds capacity on Garment making in Cross River State

December 7, 2018

The NEPC Has identified the apparel and garments sector as a product line that can quickly be developed. This is with a view to gaining market access under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA). The Cross River State Government approached the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) to conduct a firm level technical training programme for the Cross River Garment Factory Ltd. The Garment factory has been identified as an entity that could be propelled to leverage on AGOA if given the necessary technical support.

Consequently, NEPC engaged technical expatriates from sri-lanka and Ghana  to assist on the firm level training for the factory so as to enhance their efficiency level.  It was a 3 weeks training which was held from 12th to 28 November, 2018. The training will in no doubt put the factory on the platform of operating at the international market level with emphasis on US market.

Objectives

  • To provide hands on technical training to key factory personnel for skills development and enhancement
  • To provide technical advice in process layout and production line set up

Outcomes

The firm level training was an opportunity to take the factory to the next level and the trainees were excited as they craved for more. they appreciated the Council on the effort  towards improvement of their skills. And are excited at the prospects of exporting garments produced by them.
