Reviving the lost enterprises in the Russian region of Volgograd, especially with the aim of developing the light industry (which includes textiles and clothing), is one of the top priorities of the government, said acting Governor of Volgograd Andrei Bocharov during a meeting with representatives of textile and garment industry in the city of Kamyshin.

According to a statement issued by Volgograd government, the meeting saw participation from Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Viktor Evtuhova and aimed at discussing implementation of strategies for the development of the light industry of the region.

During the meeting, Minister Evtuhova said the Ministry would be extending its full support to the government of Volgograd in order to tackle the problems faced by the industrial sector and would be providing technical assistance for the growth of various sectors, including the light industry, as it has good prospects for enhancing production.

Several issues regarding the concerns of the textile and garment industry of the region were addressed during the meeting, especially challenges regarding the purchase of raw materials, training and possible cooperation between enterprises, he added.

Governor Bocharov said it was necessary to discuss protectionist measures to support light industry, such as developing a mechanism of interaction between schools and parent committees with garment manufacturers in order to centralize purchasing of uniforms.

Local apparel manufacturers of the region are ready to offer a wide range of high quality products for very reasonable prices, and it is necessary to provide them the opportunity to do so, he added.

Following the meeting, the Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade, and the Governor also visited Kamyshino textile enterprise as well as the Kamishinsky textile mills in the region to observe and examine the modernization processes that have been implemented at the production centers of the two firms, and discuss the ability to create new cooperative ties in the industry.
