The light industry, of which textiles form a major part, has helped create thousands of jobs every year, and has resulted in increased export potential for ‘Made in Kyrgyzstan’ products, the demand for which is growing, Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev, has said.

The President was speaking in the context of a textile and garment industry trade fair, held from the 23rd of October to 27th of October, 2014, at Osh, in order to celebrate the light industry’s contribution to the economy of the country, Central Asia Online reported.

More than 30 Kyrgyz manufacturers of clothing, fabrics, and rugs participated in the trade fair that attracted possible customers and investors.

Roza Sultanova, the chairwoman of the southern regional council of the textile and light industry labour union, Kyrgyzstan, said the primary goal of the Light Industry Osh-2014 trade fair was to increase the manufacturing capacity, exchange experiences, and showcase the accomplishments of Kyrgyzstan’s textile and garment industries.

Asanov, president of the Legprom (Light Industry) Association, said Legprom helps Kyrgyzstan firms make better clothing by offering various forms of training.

Osh Vice-Mayor Ilyich Ergeshev said it is important to increase the number of companies in light industry to create jobs and expand the tax base.

Indira Kadyrkanova, national programme coordinator of the International Trade Centre’s Trade Promotion Programme in Central Asia/Kyrgyzstan said the organization provides technical support to Kyrgyzstan’s textile and light industry in matters ranging from manufacturing to finding fabrics and accessories.

More than 40 garment firms employing more than 600 people are situated in Osh. (GK)
