Kazakh felt producers lack wool

Woolen manufacturers turned to Kaznex Invest, a national export and investment agency, for help.

At the initiative of domestic exporters, Kaznex Invest held a meeting dedicated to the problems of exporting livestock products (wool and products of its processing) with the participation of such enterprises as Kostanay felt footwear factory, Petropavlovsk felt footwear factory, POSH-Taraz factory, Kuat LTD "," Dos-Maden, "Ak-kiiz". Also, representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Committee for State Inspection in the Agro-Industrial Complex, the Committee for Technical Regulation and Metrology, Mal Onimderi, KazAgro and other government agencies took part in the work.

The main issue of discussion was the lack of raw materials for both finished product manufacturers and wool processors. The main reason is the increased export of wool from Kazakhstan by dealers from Russia and China. According to exporters, recently, foreign dealers, opening their representative offices in Kazakhstan, not only buy wool for nothing and take it abroad, but also receive budget subsidies and after a while they import supposedly “wool” products with a high content of synthetics.

“Another problem that negatively affects the industry is the insufficiently flexible terms of existing financial programs. This applies to collateral for loans: export contracts are not considered as collateral, but it is no secret that today every second businessman has mortgaged his property several times. It happens that financial programs are intended only for the acquisition of fixed assets, while the exporter always needs money to replenish working capital, ”said Gaziza Shakhanova, managing director of Kaznex Invest.

Now felt products from Kazakhstan are in great demand, therefore, none of the exporters complained about the lack of sales. In the near future, Kaznex Invest plans to raise the issue of wool processors to the Council of Exporters at MINT. This was reported by the Kazakh-Zerno news agency.
