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.

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.
