Italy-Vietnam Textile Technology Centre opens at HCM City

Italy-Vietnam Textile Technology Centre opened recently at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology to support training and research in textile technology. It is funded by the Italian Trade Agency and supported by the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers and the International Polytechnic for Industrial and Economic Development.

The centre, aimed at training and generating skilled Vietnamese manpower in the sector, is equipped with Italian machinery and equipment, while Vietnamese lecturers and engineers have been trained by Italian experts, a news agency report said quoting university rector Vu Dinh Thanh.

Italy is now the 18th biggest export market for Vietnam, whose apparel sector faces challenges like a reliance on imported materials and a lack of qualified designers and workers who can handle technology.
