FREE webinar: Tunisia – the UK’s nearshore partner for Professional Clothing Manufacturing

This nearshore partnership is supported by the British government.

The Buy Tunisian Textiles project, promoted in the webinar is supported by British Embassy in Tunis with funding from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) through the North Africa Technical Assistance Facility (NATAF) and implemented by Tetra Tech International Development.

A network of support to facilitate investment

The webinar’s panellists will provide insights into the Tunisian textile sector, alongside the support network and incentives on offer to encourage the professional clothing industry to invest in a reliable, competitive nearshore partner for the benefit of all parties.

Nearshore partners for professional clothing manufacturing provides resilience to supply chains

The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the lack of resilience in textile supply chains in times of uncertainty and restrictive border controls. This timely webinar promoting the nearshoring benefits of manufacturing closer to home provides nearshore solutions and more local partnerships that can help professional clothing suppliers provide reliable quality at reasonable costs.

Offering UK perspectives on the Tunisian nearshore partnerships

Gerber will be offering expert support in assisting Tunisian textile companies manufacture to regulatory standards in the UK and EU. Hunter Apparel Solutions Limited will provide a perspective from the UK professional clothing industry considering the merits of nearshoring manufacturing in Tunisia.

Yvette Ashby, Founder and CEO of PCIAW® says: “We have had the pleasure of working with Cepex and the Tunisian government for many years and we are looking forward to re-establishing the relationship. Tunisia has amazing infrastructure and people who have a talent and passion for textiles”.
