China & Japan to import flax yarn

Apr '10
Addressing a press conference, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food, Belarus, Vasily Pavlovsky informed that the country intends to export Belarusian flax yarn to China and Japan. An agreement in this regard has been signed between Belarus and China.

Belarus will soon send its specialists to China, in order to confirm the flax yarn deliveries to the latter. Further, the Belarusian delegation will be meeting Japanese specialists in the coming days to communicate the prospects of co-operation.

Country's search for potential partners from around the globe was another point that Pavlovsky spoke about. While it's expecting a noticeable growth in the market in the near future, the country is also looking forward to new opportunities.

Off-late flax producers of the country had to deal with issues pertaining to sales of short and long flax fibers as their demands fell during the economic meltdown.

As of March 1, one of the linen mills in the country had around 7,500 tons of unprocessed flax yarn in its stock, which is half-year stock; while the flax mills have 6,400 tons in stock. Pavlovsky shows urgency towards selling of these stocks.

Considering flax to be an unprofitable crop, Pavlovsky further goes to mention that the industry is subsidized across the world. Infact, he adds that in other countries the government subsidies make-up €700 per hectare for flax and in Belarus it is €347 per hectare.
