There is no differentiation in the textile and garment products made by Belarusian enterprises for selling in the domestic market and those meant for exports, an official from the Bellegprom Group, consisting of 109 companies engaged in manufacturing of textile, weaving, fabric making, leather, footwear, fur and porcelain- china products, has said.
Addressing a press conference about the performance of Bellegprom in the first half of 2013, Sergei Misuragin, first deputy chairman of Bellegprom Group, said the assortments of textiles and garments made by the Belarusian enterprises are the same for those sold in the domestic market and abroad.
Today there is no such differentiation in terms of the assortments for domestic and foreign markets as it was in the Soviet times, and now the companies do not adhere to the principle: ‘the best goes abroad’, Mr. Misuragin said.
However, he added that sometimes foreign buyers place special orders with Belarusian enterprises.
In the first six months of 2013, Bellegprom’s total exports stood at US$ 307.6 million, registering a rise of 10.5 percent year-on-year. 
During the period, Bellegprom exported its products to over 50 countries, but Russia continues to be the main market. The share of exports to Ireland, Morocco, Slovenia, Southeast Asian countries, and countries in Latin America, including Brazil, is very small.
Bellegprom accounts for 70 percent of the country's output of light industry and 20 percent of the total domestic industrial production.
