Young entrepreneurs from Myanmar will visit China under a programme to study textile and garment manufacturing technologies in the first week of June, according to the Myanmar Textile Manufacturers’ Association.
The Guangxi Economic and Trade Vocational Institute, the Ministry of Industry, and the MTMA jointly launched the scholarship programme on 28 March at the Sedona Hotel, according to the Global New Light of Myanmar.
“This is the result of an MoU. The programme has been launched to allow young Myanmar entrepreneurs to study textile and garment technologies. The Guangxi institute will provide a full scholarship, covering accommodation, food, and charges for the course,” said Tin Myo Win, the chair of the MTMA.
The programme is aimed at helping improve Myanmar’s textile and garment sector, according to the newspaper.
Twenty young entrepreneurs will be selected for the first batch of the study programme.
Then more batches of trainees will be sent to China to learn cotton ginning, weaving, thread painting, sketching and design.
