The Ministry has urged banks to invest in Russian textiles

Every year, the Russian GDP “does not counts” about 1 trillion rubles due to the large volume of import of light industry products. A clear pattern of financial losses at each stage of the value creation in the production of goods of light industry — from raw materials to the counter, presented by Deputy Minister of industry and trade of Russia Viktor Evtukhov at the International investment forum “Sochi-2016”. At a business Breakfast, which was attended by heads of the largest companies in the timber, chemical and light industry, key banks, FRP and regional authorities discussed how to promote mutual cooperation to Russian consumers, including big business, in the future, 10 years could go to a quality clothing, shoes, tekhtekstil ‘ “Made in Russia” for industries such as construction, auto and aircraft manufacturing, medicine, defense and others.

When we speak about the necessity of growth of the Russian economy, first and foremost, we must understand where our country missed its potential benefits, says EY expert Sergey Pavlov. — If you look at the value chain in modern light industry, conventionally, there are five components — the manufacture of yarns and fibres; manufacture of fabrics; sewing; design and management of brands as well as sales through retail stores. Now, if you bought a blouse for 1000 rubles, then with high probability it turns out that in Russia, this amount will be only 500 rubles (at a shop for business), and the initial raw material and the fabric and the work of the seamstresses were “imported” and, accordingly, the contribution to GDP of the Russian Federation has not brought.

As stressed by Deputy Minister Viktor Evtukhov, it is the high share of import of finished goods of the light industry today, leading to losses of 1.1% of Russia’s GDP, or nearly $ 1 trillion. RUB annually. Particularly large losses associated with the lack of production of clothes from textile materials, including viscose, displaces the cotton, and synthetic fibers. On the other hand, the country has own resources; because of the cheap rouble has developed best industry ratio of wages of Russian seamstresses with Asian.

The difficulty is that to create a stable domestic range is not enough to provide targeted support to individual enterprises or new projects. It is necessary to simultaneously run the whole chain “from raw materials to the consumer,” so that different parties could give each other the necessary materials. Otherwise, repeat the current “situation viscose” 30% viscose fabric China makes Russian raw materials and Russian then again buys textiles abroad, because its textile is not enough.

Given these problems, the Ministry decided to bring together different stakeholders: banks, representatives of related industries, regional authorities — to agree on joint support of projects.

— The aim of the government to negotiate with banks, investment funds, private investors that they helped the simultaneous start of several types of projects in light industry, — said the “MK” at the end of a business Breakfast with Deputy Minister of industry and trade of the Russian Federation Viktor Evtukhov. It is pointless to organize a company for the production of viscose, not funding the enterprise for the production of yarns and textile viscose. Now the Russian can be two very promising areas: to build mentioned rayon chain and chain for the production of polyester fibers and synthetic fabrics. Russian fabrics with modern treatment/treatments have a chance to take a share of the world market. Light industry is capable of increasing contribution to GDP to 1.5%.

— Raised industry and trade, the topic is more than relevant — said “MK” member of the Breakfast in Sochi, the General Director of OOO “Industrial cellulose” Julia Fomina. Often producers are faced with a limited market in the country, therefore, to understand the state strategy for its development is very important. Moreover, we are now planning to build in Perm region (in Chusovoy) is the first in Russia plant for production of soluble viscose pulp. Is “prefabricated”, which then will be able to use in the production of viscose fibers and yarns for high quality fabrics, food industry, pharmaceutics etc.
