New spinning mill to come up in Turkmenistan

A new cotton spinning mill is set to come up in Saparmyrat Turkmenbasy district, located in Trukmenistanís Dashoguz region, one of the four inner-most regions of the country where cotton is mainly grown. When operational, the mill will have capacity to produce 6,000 tons of cotton yarn annually, according to Central Asian media reports.

The textile industry is one of the priority industries for the growth of the Turkmen economy.

More than one million tons of cotton is grown annually in Turkmenistan, making it the ninth largest cotton producer in the world. However, not all cotton is processed within the country.

About 20 domestic textile firms that operate predominantly with Turkish partners produce around 120,000 tons of cotton yarn, 178 million square metres of fabric, 11,000 tons of knitted fabric and 7,200 tons of terrycloth.
