Penza, 10 June 2016. PenzaNews. The Penza region governor Ivan Belozertsev has rewarded the workers of the clothing and footwear companies in the Kuznetsk area during an official event dedicated to the industry’s professional holiday.
In his address to current and veteran workers of the industry on Thursday, June 9, the head of the region pointed out that even though the clothing and footwear industry is commonly called “light industry” in Russian (as compared to “heavy machinery”), it is by no means light work.
“It takes great skill, dedication and patience to make high-quality goods, so the workers here are exclusively honest, hardworking and dedicated people. Thank you for your work,” he said.
The authorities are obligated to create the suitable conditions for further development of the industry and take all the measures to make working there more coveted, Ivan Belozertsev added.
“We will be supporting the current enterprises and helping businessmen open new ones. We realize that it means new jobs, which is crucial right now for socioeconomic development of the region,” the governor stressed.
He presented gratitudes of the Russian Ministry of Industry, certificates and letters of congratulation from the Penza region governor to workers of the Kuznetsk area clothing and footwear industry for their hard work and personal contribution to the development of the field, says the press service of the regional government.
The Penza region clothing and footwear industry is comprised of over 500 companies and individual businessmen, with around 3,500 people involved.
In January-April 2016, the industrial production index in the region reached 105.8% in textile and clothing manufacturing, and 113.8% in production of leather goods and footwear.
