Kyrgyzstan exports 95 percent of cotton

May 03/2012

(yarnsandfibers) -- "Kyrgyzstan exports 95 percent of cotton,"  the head of Light Industry Department under the Ministry of Energy and Industry, Ms. Fatima Sadamkulova, said at the panel discussion on development of textile and garment industry.

According her, the republic gathers annually 101.3 thousand tons of raw cotton and 11.1 thousand tons of wool in grease. Textile industry is not developed in the country. We cannot process own raw materials because of shortage of premises, specialists and finances. In 2011, only 22.5 thousand tons were processed out of gathered cotton. The main problem is absence of productive capacities, Fatima Sadamkulova explained.

She noted that the Ministry of Agriculture intends to increase area under cotton crops up to 40, 000 hectares. "This year entrepreneurs intend to produce 120 thousand tons of raw cotton and 16.6 thousand tons of wool. Therefore it is needed to establish industrial areas in Osh province to attract investors to pour money into fiber processing and restoration of silk industry,"  Fatima Sadamkulova said.
