Fifty Tunisian businesses to receive assistance as part of GTEX-Tunisia

About fifty Tunisian firms operating in the clothing sector (denim, swimwear and working clothes) and wishing to move from sub- or co-contracting to the finished product and the development of collections will receive assistance as part of GTEX-Tunisia.

The Global Textiles and Clothing (GTEX) programme is a joint programme launched by the Government of Switzerland and the International Trade Centre (ITC) to help five recipient countries, namely Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, set up competitive and sustainable businesses with a special focus on inland regions and generate long-term employment for women and young people, in particular.

Applications are open till next April 15, the Industry and Innovation Promotion Agency (Fench: APII) said on Tuesday.

GTEX-Tunisia will be implemented over a four-year period (2018-2021); it will seek to enhance the performance of the ecosystem and support structures to ensure better services for companies and increase the competitiveness of target small and medium-sized enterprises.

GTEX-Tunisia offers training and assistance in lean management (continuous improvement of organisation), cost reduction, corporate social responsibility, marketing, etc.

The programme, which builds on the Project of Support to the Competitiveness of the Textile-Clothing Value Chain (COM-TEXHA), is intended to boost and revive the textile-clothing sector in Tunisia considering its importance for exportation and job generation.

GTEX-Tunisia aims to tackle a string of challenges, including the diversification of supply sources, a better match between training programmes for youths and the needs of businesses and obstacles facing firms in inland regions.
