Genesis Fashions Ltd., one of the sister concerns of M&J Group – leading apparel manufacturer providing high quality garments to fashion brands like Replay, H&M, New Yorker, C&A, Esprit, GAP, Old Navy and Macys in the Europe, USA, Asian and Canadian markets, has achieved the certification of Registered Training Organization from the Bangladeshi Government and International Labour Organization (ILO) under the framework of the Ready-made Garment Centre of Excellence (COE) Project.

The COE Project, financed by Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and H&M is designed to establish a replicable model of an industry-driven training and support services Centre of Excellence for the RMG sector in Bangladesh. This will implement certified training within the National Skills Development Policy (NSDP) of Bangladesh. With an industry-based training focus, the initiative can effectively increase employability and drive higher incomes for the working poor.

As a model Centre, Genesis Fashions demonstrated a sustainable, self-funded approach to coordinating training and labour market expertise and investment amongst a group of enterprises and training providers, within the framework of Bangladesh’s skills and labour policies and institutions. “We are extremely proud: we have worked so hard for our country and this certification represents the edge of a long work, which has been rewarded today” claims Munir Ahmed, Owner of M&J Group.
