Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov addressed the country's silkworm breeders on the occasion of their labor victory. The cocoon harvesters met the state plan and harvested more than 2,100 tons.
The Turkmen leader noted the important role of the silk industry in the textile industry. Turkmen enterprises have modernized production facilities and made efforts to revive the art of making keteni in order to develop silk production. In addition, new versions of panbarkhat are being produced from domestic silk.
As stressed by the Head of State, in the future the volume of investments in the silk industry will increase. The funds will be used to improve the production base, create new jobs and increase the output of valuable raw materials.
