Kyrgyzstan should expand garment exports: GIZ expert

The Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan should continue to expand its exports of garments beyond Russia and Kazakhstan, Maksat Damir uluu from the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) said while speaking at a roundtable on “Promoting sustainable economic development”, in Bishkek, earlier this month, kabar.kg reported.
 
Participating in the discussion, the GIZ expert said that over 90 percent of apparel exports from Kyrgyzstan are currently destined to Russia and Kazakhstan, and it is necessary to develop other markets.
 
The expert said that the GIZ program 2013-15 currently being implemented in Kyrgyzstan for the development of the textile and clothing sector includes a plan for expansion of exports of Kyrgyz products.
 
The program has already resulted in increasing the efficiency and competitiveness of the Kyrgyz textile and garment industry by 10 percent and there is need to improve the investment climate in the sector, the expert noted.
 
Damir uluu said the GIZ is focused on the development of value addition, and hence it supports entrepreneurs in every sector of the textile and garment industry.
 
The four key goals of the GIZ project are improving competitiveness, diversification and expansion of exports, creating favourable conditions for the development of textile production, and strengthening social dialogue and partnership between enterprises and government agencies.
 
Damir uluu identified the need for setting up a laboratory for certification of Kyrgyz textiles and apparels.
 
Speaking at the roundtable, Fatima Sadamkulova, head of the department for the development of light industry in the Ministry of Energy and Industry, said the Kyrgyzstan Government is actively taking steps to improve the state of the textile industry.
 
She lamented that the textiles sector could not be developed due to absence of necessary technology in the country, and appealed investors to come forward and invest in the country’s textile sector.
