According to Sathish Kumar Somuraj, general director of TUV SUD Vietnam, under the MOU, they will co-organize quality and safety workshops and awareness programmes related to the textile and garment industry. The in-house training sessions would aim to provide local manufacturers an updated and more in-depth understanding of stringent international quality and safety standards.

Somuraj said that quality and safety control are essential for companies in Việtnam, especially those looking to take their products to international markets.

Phạm Xuân Hồng, AGTEK chairman, said that Việtnam has improved its business opportunities by signing free trade agreements with some key global players like the EU, US, Japan, Korea, and ASEAN. These agreements would bring global market access to Vietnamese businesses.

The Vietnamese manufacturers have to comply with more stringent quality and safety regulations as international government safety and quality regulations on textile and garment products are changing constantly, especially in today’s free trade business landscape.

Moreover, global buyers, especially those in Europe and the US, are increasingly demanding with respect to the kind and quality of products they want.
