Clothing Industry Training Authority (CITA) was established in 1975 according to the Industry Training (Clothing Industry) Ordinance of Hong Kong to provide training courses for the clothing and textile industry. Its mission is to assist the clothing industry to enhance its global competitiveness through the adoption of an industry-led approach to effectively strengthen our services in:
- Training and developing management and technical professionals
- Promoting sound commercial practices, as well as productivity and quality improvement programmes
- Facilitating the application of information technology
In response to the rapidly changing technologies in the clothing industry, CITA has set up the Industry Support Department to offer consultancy services and technical support for the industry. The professional teams of CITA maintain close partnerships with organisations and research institutes from the fashion industry. Such partnerships enable CITA to provide up-to-date knowledge and technology support for fashion brands, manufacturers and suppliers within the clothing and textile industry and thus can enhance their competiveness in the global market.
In this project, CITA is the sole implementation agent to establish a Sample Development Centre (SDC) to provide a studio space with one-stop service and solution for Hong Kong fashion designers.
