Sustainable foreigners

The global economy is paradoxical: the Netherlands ($ 2009 billion) and Luxembourg ($ 1,8 billion) became the largest foreign investors in the Russian economy in the first months of the 1,3. Moreover, which is characteristic, 72% of the financial flow from the Netherlands came from wholesale and retail trade. There were few who wanted to invest in shoe production, but nevertheless, over the past few years, the first timid swallows appeared. One project has reached the implementation stage, another promises to be embodied in visible forms next year.

"Shoe company BAOFU" works without interruption

SR73-Mir_shoe_rynok-Ino_1_134x200.jpgAt the end of 2006, in the village of Kharlamovo, Tavrichesky District, Omsk Region, the production of silicone shale and polystyrene shale was launched on the basis of the BAOFU Shoe Company. 10 million rubles was invested in the purchase of new equipment. At the first stage of work, it was planned to produce 25 thousand pairs of shoes per year.

According to the chief accountant of the company Nadezhda Vrubel, the profit from oil shale production for the three-year period increased by 30%, although in 2008 production volumes were three times higher than in the current one. Demand fell due to the crisis. In 2010, the company plans to return to the previous level of work, although production will not expand either. The founders of the company - Chinese organizations - still supply raw materials from China. The technique used to make shoes for pools, beaches and saunas is at a high level, all machines are equipped with electronic microcircuits and work without interruption. Since the opening, the equipment has not yet been updated. Slates are supplied to almost all cities in Russia. The production employs Chinese migrants and local residents.

"Kanji" are waiting for the first swallows by May

Three years ago, in Ussuriysk, an enterprise with the name Kantsji Industrial-Commercial Joint-Stock Company was registered. This was the first stage of the Russian-Chinese program, under which two Chinese corporations Kannai and Jixin (which formed the name of the new company) planned to create large-scale shoe production (9 million pairs per year - more than any Russian shoe factory) having invested $ 250 million in it. The construction of the zone for 68 enterprises was to be completed by the 2011 year.

According to Anatoly Pasechnik, Executive Director of Kanji, the business plan announced in 2006 remains valid. However, due to changes in local land legislation, registration of the area intended for construction is still under consideration by local authorities. This paperwork slows down the whole process of business development. So far, only 4 factories have been rebuilt in the allocated zone. They plan to legalize the land only by May 2010 of the year.
