CTCP Programmes

The CTCP consists of two programmes that are managed by the CTCP Desk within the IDC. These programmes are the Competitiveness Improvement Programme (CIP) and the Production Incentive Programme (PIP).

The Competitiveness Improvement Programme (CIP) is administered by the Clothing & Textiles Competitiveness Programme (CTCP) Desk at the IDC.  Click here for Programme Guidelines, Required Forms and Quickguides (which supplement and explain the Programme Guidelines). The CIP aims, through the cluster approach, to create a group of globally competitive companies that would ensure a sustainable business environment able to retain and grow employment levels. Two different cluster compositions will be supported, namely an ordinary cluster and a national cluster preferably supported by subnational (previously known as regional) clusters. Interventions should include innovative plans focused on people, process, product and market development.

The Production Incentive Programme (PIP) is also administered by the CTCP Desk at the IDC. Click here for Programme Guidelines, Required Forms and Quickguides (which supplement and explain the Programme Guidelines). The programme is based on a 7.5% incentive on Manufacturing Value Addition (MVA).  The incentive will be banked with the IDC and ring-fenced for each specific company and made available to them on presentation of qualifying competitiveness improvement interventions.
