    The Sri Lankan apparel sector finally appears to have started realizing the benefits of the recently reinstated Generalized System of Preferences Plus (GSP Plus) facility with the European Union (EU) with double digit growth in exports, while the exports to the US market too saw an uptick.

    MAS opened a fresh chapter in its history by officially acquiring intellectual property which was researched and created by a Sri Lankan institute yesterday.

    The technology is a result of one and a half years of research and development conducted by SLINTEC, and was conceptualised to create superior drying rates for sportswear fabric through a high tech functional coating.

    This research project undertaken by SLINTEC, funded by MAS, has resulted in an outstanding solution with built-in simplicity of application which makes it economically viable.
