MINSK, 5 October (BelTA) – Difficulties stimulate companies to grow, Deputy Head of the Belarusian light industry concern Bellegprom Natalya Murashko said at the panel discussion “Light industry in modern conditions. Projects, incentives, cooperation” that took place on the sidelines of the international textile industry fair BelTexIndustry 2022 at the National Exhibition Center BelExpo in Minsk, BelTA has learned.

“Our event is timed to the opening of BelTexIndustry 2022. The time is changing, thus the format and content of the exhibition are changing, too. At the same time, exhibitions remain the main tool to promote products in the domestic market and abroad,” said Natalya Murashko.

According to her, despite all the challenges that the light industry has experienced this year, it maintains a good pace. “We have increased exports to foreign markets, overcome difficulties related to the supply of raw materials and component parts, as well as logistics. We have got help from the Agency for International Business Development. I want to emphasize that difficulties provide a stimulus to grow. We have learned a lot over this time,” the Bellegprom deputy chair emphasized.

The Russian Federation remains the main foreign trade partner of the concern. “This year, we have gone a long way to work out joint measures to promote the light industry in the two countries. These measures were also adopted at the supranational level - duties on many commodities and raw materials used in the light industry as well as on other goods were scrapped,” she noted. “Belarus and the Russian Federation put together a working group on light industry. This group discusses current activities and explores new areas of cooperation. In particular, several joint projects have already been planned. We will process Russian wool at our enterprises and export finished products back to the Russian Federation,” she said.

“We respect and value partnerships with colleagues who are taking part in our exhibition today,” Natalya Murashko emphasized.

BelTexIndustry is the largest light industry in Belarus. Every year the events brings together manufacturers and suppliers of light industry products, raw materials, equipment and accessories and also fashion designers. The organizer is the national exhibition center BelExpo with the support of the Bellegprom concern. The mission of the exhibition is to showcase the capabilities of Belarusian manufacturers. Every year it draws more than 4,000 visitors.
