LEGPROM president Farhad Raimzhanov said that the Ail Okmoty Military Antonovskii (executive body of village administration of Sokuluk district in Chui province of Kyrgyzstan) has issued a decision to grant around 50 hectares of land in the Chui province for the construction of the garment park, which is expected to begin this year, reports vb.kg.
Mr. Raimzhanov also informed that LEGPROM is in talks with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development as well as the International Finance Corporation for a loan in order to facilitate the construction process of the sewing technopolis.
The Ministry of Energy and Industry has also assured that by October 30, 2014, it would submit the draft of legislative framework for the garment park to the Kyrgyz Government for approval, and would also develop a feasibility study for the project in order to ensure compliance with logistics, environmental protection and energy saving, he added.
The construction of the sewing technopolis would cost US$ 25 million, and would include around 30 to 40 sewing workshops, which would create employment for around 10,000 people in the region. The construction of the garment park is expected to be completed by 2015.
In 2013, the Government had allocated 50 hectares of land in Voenno-Antonovka village near the country’s capital city of Bishkek, for the construction of the sewing technopolis, however, the construction could not be carried forward owing to emergence of residential areas around the capital city.
The LEGPROM (Light Industry) Association in Kyrgyzstan consists of over 600 companies, which together employ over 150,000 people.
