Kazakhstan needs to raise its clothing production to meet national demand, according to Energyprom.kz, a research agency. Many segments perform poorly and production meets only 1-2 per cent of the domestic demand. Domestic manufacturers accounted for 19.3 per cent of national demand for hosiery and 16.9 per cent of sportswear demand in January.

During the first two months of this year, Kazakh enterprises produced clothing worth $13.89 million, a 15.5 per cent rise compared to a year before, a Kazakh newspaper reported citing Energyprom, which focuses on the nation’s energy sector and industry.

The Almaty region accounts for the biggest share at 18.1 per cent, almost double compared to the previous year. The next was the Karaganda region with a 16.1 per cent share.

Knitwear production increased fivefold, while fur clothing production decreased by 8.5 per cent and girls’ outerwear by 19 per cent. (DS)
