The government of Moldova, a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, plans to design a package of measures aimed at supporting the national textile industry, aiming to make it more competitive in the international arena.
According to an official spokesman of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the development of the industry is currently prevented by a number of problems, including poor technical equipment, small volumes of production, lack of skilled labour and the dominance of products with low added value. Moreover, the Moldovan textile industry experiences a shortage of raw materials and the necessary funds for its development.
