Thailand's apparel industry is suffering due to a drop in the number of University graduates specialising in the technical personnel aspects of the industry, reports Thailand's The Nation. According to the report, secretary-general of the Thai Garment Manufacturers' Association (TGMA), Somboon Juasathirattana, feels that the apparel sector is failing to recruit sufficient industrial engineers, factory managers and other technicians, which may affect the expansion of the industry in the future.
