MINSK, 1 March (BelTA) - In 2022 the Belarusian timber, woodworking, pulp and paper industry concern Bellesbumprom produced import-substitution products worth nearly $1 billion, Bellesbumprom Chairman Mikhail Kasko told a briefing on the industry's performance in 2022, BelTA has learned.
Import-substitution production was a significant indicator of the industry's performance last year. “We reached almost $1 billion in 2022. The task set by the government and the head of state to increase import-substitution production was fulfilled. Our production was of an applied nature. We are talking not only about the board products, which later turned into furniture, but also about the pulp and paper industry,” Mikhail Kasko said.
We produce a wide range of cartons, types of paper. “When there were disruptions in the supply of office paper, we could readjust the equipment and cover the need for these types of paper. We launched the production of tissue for sanitary products. This is a completely new product on the market,” Mikhail Kasko said.
