The rise in textiles and garment production is due to hike in production of cotton, cotton fabric and other items.
However, the value of Tajikistan’s textiles and clothing exports fell marginally by 1.6 percent year-on-year, during January-May 2012 period.
In 2011, Tajikistan produced textiles and clothing items worth 1.4 billion somoni (US$ 292.3 million).
