Russian Ministry to ban govt buying of imported clothing

Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade (Minpromtorg) has proposed prohibiting government purchases of clothing manufactured abroad or from foreign materials. However, this would not be applicable on those products which are not produced in the territory of Russia or Belarus.
 
A draft resolution on the same has been published and after two weeks of public discussion, the resolution is likely to be adopted in the first quarter of 2014, Minpromtorg said, according to the information on the website of the Russian Union of Entrepreneurs of Textile and Light Industries (Souzlegprom).
 
The ban would apply to purchase for the needs of the federal authorities and the needs of national defence and state security, the document stated.
 
The proposed regulation also includes a ban on the use of semi-finished fibres for the production of fabrics. However, if a material, like cotton, is not produced in Russia, then it can be bought from other countries. In addition, products can be imported when the material is produced in insufficient quantities in the country.
 
According to Souzlegprom, the total textile and light industry sales in 2012 in Russia amounted to 2.8 trillion rubles, of which, only 689 billion rubles of goods were produced domestically, and the remaining products worth 1.108 trillion rubles were imported from other countries.
 
Russia is dependent on imports for almost all its cotton needs, about 85 percent of its wool, and about one-third of its chemical fibre requirements.
