"The enterprises of the industry make products that are of large market demand, however, there are difficulties in their realization," according to the report.

"The matter is that the ministry services made for market studies and placement of goods there, basically do not work," the president noted. "No work is carried out for the modernization of the textile enterprises, and in this regard equipment on many of them becomes obsolete."

During the years of independence dozens of textile companies, totaling more than $1.6 billion were built. This increased the volume of domestically processed cotton up to 51 percent.

Most of the domestic goods are exported to the U.S, Canada, Germany, England, Russia, Italy, Turkey, China, Ukraine.

Such companies as Puma, Bershka, Nautika, Sara Lee, WalMart, JC Penney and others are among the customers of ready-made goods from Turkmenistan.
