PM Attends Cotton-Textile Factory Re-Commissioning in Maralik
Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan paid a working visit to Maralik, Shirak Marz.
The Head of Government attended a cotton-textile factory re-commissioning ceremony in Maralik. The USD 13 million-worth investment project is being implemented by the Artik SHP LLC.
At one of its end-of-year sessions last year, the Government decided to exempt the company from import duties for all goods and equipment imported under the specified investment program. The imported products will be used in the production and processing of cotton, filament, and fabric scraps.
Prime Minister Pashinyan toured the factory to get a first-hand view of the manufacturing process, working conditions and amenities. Company executives Gevorg Gasparyan and Vartan Sirmakes told the Premier that the Maralik Cotton Plant will produce pure cotton and semi-cotton yarns. The plant’s output is currently being used in the production of cotton ropes, sheets, gloves, socks and towels. The production of cotton-based medical articles is envisaged in the near future.
