The strategy targets the entire textile and clothing value chain, from the production of fibres to their processing and to the production of final textile products for consumer use. Given the short timeframe of the strategy and the different degrees of development which characterize each stage of the value chain, the document suggests to follow a differentiated strategy, focusing all domestic investments on the clothing sector (already well-developed) and relying on foreign investments to improve fibre production and processing. Hence, the fundamental recommendations for the fibre production and processing industry are: i) to evaluate whether to rehabilitate some of the major former state-owned enterprises focused on specific products or to liquidate them; ii) to establish active programmes in order to attract foreign strategic partners, in particular in spinning; iii) to support programmes for medium-size private enterprises having a clear business plan; iv) to support public and private institutions (education and association); v) to support know-how transfer of technology, productivity improvement, processing management and product development trough Private-Public Partnerships projects. The key recommendations for the clothing industry are: i) to carry out market studies and a tailored marketing strategy for Russia and other CIS countries; ii) to enhance marketing and sales capability of enterprises through an aggressive promotion programme, including fairs and direct retailers contacts; iii) to strengthen “Legprom”, “Soyuztextil” and “Svey-Profi” to offer adequate services and training to members; iv) to improve systematically overall productivity; v) to source and buy cooperatives for raw and other materials.
