Sudokkho, a United Kingdom and Switzerland-funded programme, will provide technical assistance to the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) on imparting training on skills enhancement of sewing machine operators.
The skills can be enhanced in 15 to 20 days, raising efficiency on the production floor at 45 to 65 percent, says a statement.
An agreement was signed in this regard by Rubana Huq, president of the BGMEA, and Erling Petersen, team leader of Sudokkho, in Dhaka on Wednesday.
The deal includes transferring Sudokkho’s knowhow into the academic curriculum of the BGMEA University of Fashion and Technology.
Moreover, the RMG and Textile Industry Skills Council and BGMEA-affiliated training centres will also get technical assistance under the agreement.
Sudokkho has established in-house training centres in over 120 factories.
