The chief minister of Manipur recently inspected the three manufacturing units of Imphal: Apparel and Garment Making Centre, Lamboikhongnangkhong in the west district. The building and machinery of unit-1 of the government-owned centre is currently utilised by Big Concepts Foundation and Unit-3 by a local company called Ningthibee Collections for high quality apparel production.
The three units can produce large number of apparels and garments. After accessing the production unit, the state will sign an MoU with a Mauritian company to supply about one lakh pieces of various apparels per month. The state is planning to sign a MoU with the two local private companies within a week to work together in this regard in public-private partnership model. Around 10 trainers from Delhi will train around 1,000 state youths to start large scale production of apparels, and the centre has machineries for around 350 workers.
