Belarusian state concern Bellegprom will spend over 1 trillion Belarusian rubles this year on upgrading its facilities, Tatiana Starchenko, deputy chairperson of Bellegprom, said at a press conference on the eve of Day of Light Industry, BelTA reported.
About one-fourth of this sum was invested in the first quarter of 2014, Ms. Starchenko said.
The modernization projects include those of Baranovichy Cotton Association, Orsha Linen Mill and Minsk JSC Kamvol, she informed.
Currently, they are preparing documents for the purchase of equipment on a competitive basis for the worsted fabric modernization project, the deputy chairperson said. She added that on completion of this project in 2017, an additional capacity to produce 6 million metres of high-grade worsted-fabric a year would be created.
Bellegprom was founded in 1992 as a concern of the Government of Belarus. It consists of 109 companies of different ownership and lines of production and employs about 60,000 people.
The industrial enterprises that come under Bellegprom are engaged in manufacturing yarn, fabric, garments, footwear and other products. 
Bellegprom also includes the Center for Research of Light Industry, the Service of Institutional Control, the Trade Company “Legprom”, other trade companies, Minsk State College of Technology and Design for Light Industry, and Baranovichi State College of Light Industry.
It accounts for 70 percent of Belarus’ output of light industry and 20 percent of total domestic industrial production in Belarus.
Last year, Bellegprom produced over 15 million metres of carpets and rugs, more than 24 million pieces of hosiery, and nearly 32 million pieces of apparel.
