According to press release issued by ITC Trade Promotion Program, the workshop participants include industry leaders, experienced manufacturers, designers, government agencies, academia and heads of support services involved in the sector.

Reflecting on their recent experiences from a market orientation tour of textiles and clothing exhibitions and accessory suppliers in Paris, stakeholders from across the sector, with the help of ITC specialists, are refining action plans created during the previous seminars into a holistic development strategy.

Results will be presented to donors and development banks and selected activities subsequently refined into projects for implementation.

Outputs from the workshop will include: strategy to shape the future of the Tajik textiles and clothing industries; prioritized implementation plan; confirmation of immediate development activities and implementing partners; and framework / organization for strategy implementation coordination.

Towards the end of the seminar participants will set dates for Working Group meetings in April to refine the final strategy and implementation plans and set dates for the start of implementation project work.

Following the strategy seminar technical seminars on quality management will be hold for enterprises from all three manufacturing regions in Tajikistan and then ITC consultants will visit individual enterprises to discuss progress after earlier evaluation visits in 2009.

The event is being held under the Trade Promotion Program in Tajikistan implemented by the ITC and funded by SECO. The overall objective of this program is to contribute to the sustainable expansion and diversification of SMEs’ exports in Tajikistan through increasing the competitiveness of the textile and clothing industry and improving the quality management infrastructure of the country.
