The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has agreed to assist Pakistan in improving its textile industry by providing support in marketing, vocational training for women and building garment technology institutes.

At a meeting Tuesday with Pakistan’s Minister of Textile Industry, Abbas Khan Afridi, JICA’s director general identified three main initiatives, one with the Ministry of Textile Industry, the Pakistan Knitwear Training Institute, located in Lahore, and the Faisalabad Garment City, Pakistan’s Daily Times reported. These programs are set to begin next year.

In partnership with Pakistan, JICA plans to train 120,000 workers and launch an internship program together with All Pakistan Textile Mills Association. These arrangements will focus on increasing export promotion and worker skills in the country’s textile industry, and Afridi said JICA’s support will be crucial in the endeavor.

JICA has also aided Pakistan in ensuring human security and human development, improving its overall economy, and working to achieve balanced development in Pakistan -Afghanistan border areas.
