Monday, June 9, 2014

In order to improve employees skills and increase the productivity and competitiveness of enterprises, the National Commission of Free Zones (CNZF) is proposing the creation of a textile school, where ongoing training on production techniques would be provided for the sector.

"Álvaro Baltodano, Technical Secretary of the National Commission of Free Zones (CNZF) said: 'Creating this school is an outstanding debt owed to employees of companies, we are looking for alternatives to be able to make this a reality ... this textile school is an absolute requirement for improving the labor that exists in the country. '"

"'We need to train our workforce and thereby improve productivity, as although we have made progress in these terms, we still have differences compared to other countries in terms of productivity, but that is a challenge that we have to rise to as a team.' said the official. "
