Myanmar’s garment industry which has registered decent growth in recent years needs more employees to fulfil the demand. Myanmar, now home to more than 400 garment factories, has noted significant growth after European Union (EU) lifted economic sanctions. This has been stated by the Myanmar Garment Entrepreneurs Association (MGEA).

“Currently, Myanmar garment factories are manufacturing clothing of export quality to fulfil the demand. Garments are exported upon EU lifting of sanctions. So, we need more employees,” said Daw Khin Khin Nwe, General Secretary of MGEA.

According to MGEA, five garment factories are being opened per month in Myanmar. And, there are 1,000 employees working per factory.
