According to a statement issued by COMPROM, at the roundtable conference, Mr. Kasymbekov explained that the structure of the light industry of Kazakhstan is divided in a way that 50 percent concentrates on production of textiles and the rest 50 percent for the production of clothing, leather and other products.
