Belarus to cooperate with clothing manufacturers from Uzbekistan

TASHKENT, 7 February (BelTA) – Belarus will cooperate with Uzbek enterprises in the production of apparel, Chairwoman of the Belarusian state light industry concern Bellegprom Tatiana Lugina told the media on the sidelines of the 2nd Forum of Regions of Belarus and Uzbekistan in Tashkent, BelTA has learned.

“We have slightly revised our approaches and views on possible cooperation between the Belarusian and Uzbek light industries. For decades we have been working with Uzbek cotton in the form of yarn, textiles, and knitted fabrics. Over the last two years we have made significant steps forward in industrial cooperation,” Tatiana Lugina said.

Belarus has a shortage of seamstresses. Attracting citizens from other countries does not seem the best option. “We have gone the other way. Today such Belarusian enterprises as Svitanak, Slavianka, Kalinka, Orsha Linen Mill have already placed their orders with Uzbek enterprises. We bring our own textiles, knitted fabrics, documentation, and developments. We also train workers and provide technical support,” she noted. 

“Strategically, we have decided that labor-intensive products (suits, dresses, coats) and some complex elements will be made in our country. In terms of some other assortment items we will work with our Uzbek colleagues ,” Tatiana Lugina added.
