As part of plans to ensure that this is done well, the state government last year sent some garment and leather makers to Turkey to study the methods used in garment and shoe making, and for the acquisition of state-of-the-art processing machines.

According to the report, the trainees from la st year’s Turkey visit, will serve as the pilot staff for the industry.

This effort is part of the state government’s commitment towards creating more employment opportunities for youths.
